Even though it started as a meme in social media, teens all over the country started recreating it by eating Tide Pods as in this new ill-advised YouTube challenge.

A male student at Brigham Young University-Idaho reportedly filmed his roommate naked and later attempted to swallow a Tide Pod after confessing to the filming to Rexburg authorities.

According to the Rexburg Standard-Journal, the man allegedly set up a camera to secretly film his male roommate to later use the footage to masturbate. EastIdahoNews.com identified the suspect as a BYU-Idaho student.

The suspect later consumed a detergent pod, “to injure himself,” the news organizations report.

The man later took a mental health evaluation. He has not been arrested or charged with a crime, according to EastIdahoNews.com.
