Have you all been following this story? Apparently the police have identified the girl who is in the video licking directly into a tub of ice cream like she lost her mind, but cannot press charges.
If you have been living under a rock, the gist of the story is, a young lady and her boyfriend thought it would be cute to go to the grocery store open a sealed Blue Bell ice cream tub, lick it, put it back in the freezer and post the mess to social media.
Here is the story:
According to the Texas police, they found the girl and her boyfriend and both confessed to the gross act but because the girl is under 17 they cannot release her name or press charges as an adult.

Texas cops on Friday said they found the girl who licked a tub of Blue Bell ice cream and then put it back on the shelf — and she even confessed after being busted with the boyfriend who filmed her in the video gone viral.
“They were both forthcoming with what occurred and admitted to the act,” Lufkin Police and Fire announced in a proud “CASE SOLVED” posting on Facebook on Friday.
The dairy detectives outlined the intricacies of their case, saying that a catfisher had deliberately misled everyone and bragged about it on Instagram — slowing down them getting the real inside scoop on who was behind the gross viral video.
And as the girl is under 17, they also seem to have thawed on locking her in the cooler despite previously warning she could have faced up to 20 years in jail along with fines of up to $10,000.
“We do not intend to pursue charges against her as an adult and therefore what happens from here is at the discretion of the juvenile justice system,” the department said, not identifying the girl because of her age.
“As to whether her boyfriend will face charges, we are currently discussing his involvement with prosecutors,” the statement added, with the boyfriend being an adult.
Police said they believe the pair entered a Walmart late on June 28 for the sick stunt that has been viewed more than 11 million times.
Well she is in the hands of Juvi now, and for all the copy catters over 17 years old, hope the videos and Instagram clout chasing is worth the possible 20 years.
