A Texas teen made news — and found herself in trouble with the law for a social media post showing her licking an open carton of Blue Bell ice cream at a grocery store and putting it back into the store freezer. Now a pair of Bellaire police officers have found themselves with a share of the attention focused on the “Lufkin Licker.”
Their tongue-in-cheek photo taken “guarding” the ice cream freezer case at the Bellaire H-E-B has taken off on social media, with more than 800 shares of the Bellaire Police Officers Association Facebook post alone, and has made news in Houston, across the U.S. and even abroad.
For the record, the officers are, left, Blake Bellard, and right, Chase Liccketto. No joke — Liccketto.
