A SECOND prankster has been filmed licking ice cream from the tub and sticking his finger inside before putting the container back in a sick copycat video.
Lenise Martin III, 36, has been arrested after he was caught on camera slurping Blue Bell ice cream before putting the tub back in a shop freezer.
It comes just days after a video of a young woman licking straight from the tub went viral with more than 11million views on Twitter.
Cops are now urging people not to copy this “illegal” and “atrocious act”, warning that anyone caught doing so will be charged.
Martin is believed to have been filmed licking the ice cream at a shop in Belle Rose, Louisiana.
Investigators say after management became aware of the video, Martin returned to the store and showed the clerk a receipt to prove he’d bought the ice cream.
Despite this, cops have charged him with unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity, and tampering with property.
Martin remains in jail and will have bond set by a judge Monday.
“We discourage anyone from copying this atrocious act,” said a spokesman for the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.
“It is illegal. It’s a health risk to others. We will pursue anyone we see do this. You will be charged.”
The spokesman added that any copycats will be dealt with “immediately and with the full extent of the law.”
Cops have also identified the young woman from the original video – but her name will not be released publicly because she’s a minor.
She was filmed licking the ice cream at a local Walmart in Texas before putting it back into the freezer.
In the grim clip, a man can be heard encouraging the women – saying: “Lick it, lick it, lick it!”
He then urges her to “put it back” in the supermarket freezer – before she reseals the Blue Bell-branded treat.
