Man Charged After Allegedly Licking Supermarket Goods

Posted by

While the vast majority of us have been staying indoors to try and save lives, save the NHS and slow down the spread of COVID-19, some numpties out there have been allegedly acting like buffoons. 

Most of us have seen the video of one male in America who decided to walk into a supermarket and lick a load of groceries while spouting off some rubbish about the fact that he is not scared of COVID-19 — as of COVID-19 cares. 

He was arrested by local police and ended being charged with terrorism-related offences

He also attracted a tsunami of criticism from decent-minded citizens who condemned his ridiculous actions. 

And today we learn that UK cops have lifted yet another male for licking various supermarket produce for reasons only the moronic would probably understand. 

Dorset Police confirmed that at around 2 pm on Friday 3rd April, a man walked into a Lidl’s on St Andrews Road wearing a face mask and gloves. 

He allegedly lowered his mask, licked his fingers, before purposely rubbing them onto a product in the store. 

The individual was spotted by staff and shoppers who then alerted the police to what had happened. 

After making some enquiries, police arrested a 20-year-old man who was subsequently charged with an offence of ‘contaminating or interfering with goods with intent under section 38 of the Public Order Act 1986’. 

What is outstanding here is the fact that the law has taken into account the fact that there are fools out there who like to interfere with our groceries by licking them. 

The male, in this case, is due to appear at Weymouth Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 6th May. 

Police have confirmed that the licker, in this case, did not have COVID-19 and that he was not displaying symptoms consistent with the virus at the time of the alleged incident.
