Ariana Grande will not be charged for Donutgate

Ariana Grande: I Donut Always Stick to My Diet

Ariana Grande will not have to face legal repercussions for her recent bout of "deliberate food tampering," as the Riverside County Sheriff's office put it. According to a statement from the sheriff's office, Wolfee Donuts elected not to press charges against the singer and backup dancer Ricky Alvarez after they were caught on camera licking donuts on the shop's counter.

"Donutgate" already caused some fallout for Grande, who has since apologized (twice), for both the donut licking and the comments she made about the donuts, which included the (presumably hyperbolic) statement "I hate America."

Wolfee Donuts also suffered in the wake of the incident: Their health department grade went from A to B.
