Girl licks medical equipment before putting it back at doctor's office

Girl licks medical equipment before putting it back at doctor's office

The judge ruled Ward could go free while she awaits trial so long as she avoids social media and does not have any contact with the All About Kids & Families Medical Center, where the video was filmed.

Ward, who recorded the video, was arrested Thursday morning by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office on a charge of tampering with consumer products without regard for possible death or bodily injury, jail records show. Above the jar is a sign that reads, "Please do not touch medical supplies! Thank you!" and "Don't tell me how to live my life".

"What I didn't know was that there was a "licking challenge" as I don't scroll social media like that", adding "The video doesn't show that the items were thrown away or anything else that happened". She said she recorded the video to share with her friends on Snapchat, and one of them must have shared it to other social media. "In Addition, we immediately removed all material and containers from the specific exam room and re-sanitized our entire facility".

"What people don't know is I am not a bad mother, I am also not a nasty person", the post reads.

But the mother told First Coast News that it wasn't a choreographed prank.

And she insisted that she had no intention of the video going viral, claiming to have circulated it to a few close friends - one of whom later made it public. "Our internal investigation did not reveal any associated risks or harms to patients as a result of these actions", - said in the hospital.

The video appears to be part of a disturbing trend where people film themselves licking food and objects before placing them back on shelves. When authorities located the teen last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) weighed in, tweeting, "Glad they caught this despicable criminal".

A man from Louisiana was arrested recently after he was videotaped when he was licking ice cream in the grocery store before putting it back in the fridge. "I didn't post it on Facebook or YouTube as a challenge or whatever". "It should have never been taken this far", she added.
