Ariana Grande Will Not Face Criminal Charges After Doughnut-Licking Incident
Wolfee Donuts "declined to press criminal charges," police tell PEOPLE
Ariana Grande‘s doughnut-licking incident won’t be a “Problem” anymore.
Last week, surveillance footage leaked of the singer licking unattended doughnuts and shouting “I hate America” at Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, California.
But, the bakery’s owners “declined to press criminal charges against Ms. Grande,” Michael Vasquez, deputy sheriff at Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, tells PEOPLE.
The “Break Free” singer apologized twice, and California police and public health officials launched an investigation into the shop because of the incident, causing Wolfee Donuts to receive a B rating from the health inspector.
Per California law, restaurants are required to keep food products protected from the public.
Joe Marin, owner of the shop, tells PEOPLE: “We got a B because the donuts were on top of the tray, and we were actually stocking up. My employees kept going in the back and grabbing some more They were minor things: little, tiny, minor things that were fixed in three days.”
Marin adds that the health inspector will be returning on July 15 for a followup inspection: “We already fixed all the problems.”
