A woman filmed licking a tub of ice cream and returning it to a grocery store shelf in a viral video last week is facing up to 20 years in prison, police said here on Thursday.

The police in Lufkin, Texas, said the incident took place in a Walmart and that officers worked to confirm her identity and that of the person who filmed the video.

The viral video was viewed over 12 million times – showing the so-far unnamed woman opening a container, running her tongue across the ice cream then laughing as she places the violated dessert back in the freezer, in a branch of Walmart in the city of Lufkin, eastern Texas.

Police also want to speak to the man she was with, who is thought to have filmed the incident and can be heard encouraging the woman to “lick it, lick it.”

According to Texas state penal code, she is now facing a second-degree felony charge of tampering with a consumer product.

Investigators are also in discussions with the FDA and additional federal charges could be made.
