A man who foolishly recorded himself licking things in a Missouri Walmart has now been arrested and charged with a felony.
Warrenton resident Cody Pfister, 26, recorded himself on March 11 licking items on the shelves at a local Walmart, then laughing about it saying, “Who’s afraid of the coronavirus?”
The video went viral and spread all around the world. Police say they were shocked when they were called and emailed by people living in the Netherlands, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
Indeed, even British TV personality Piers Morgan blasted the idiot on Twitter:
Find him, arrest him, imprison him, & deny him any healthcare if he gets the virus.

You know what I’d like to happen to him? I’d like him found, and I’m sure they’ll get him, put in prison immediately and then I’d like him deprived of any health care should be then get the virus having deliberately tried to give it, potentially, to lots of other people. That might concentrate the minds of these morons. And it might concentrate the minds of these morons here too.
“We take these complaints very seriously and would like to thank all of those who reported the video so the issue could be addressed,” the Warrenton Police Department said in a statement this week after the arrest.
Officials moved in and arrested Pfister and county prosecutors charged him with a low-level felony.
“Pfister was booked into the Warren County jail without bond. He has previous convictions for burglary, theft of a firearm, drug possession and driving while intoxicated,” River Front Times reported.
