Ariana Grande is off the hook after she was caught licking donuts on a store's surveillance camera. 

The owner of Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, California has "declined to press criminal charges against Ms. Grande," according to Michael Vasquez, deputy sheriff at Riverside County Sheriff's Department (via People).

The "Problem" pop star caused quite the uproar for licking and spitting on a tray of donuts while at the bakery. Grande's actions even led public health officials to launching an investigation into Wolfee Donuts. The health inspector downgraded the bakery from an "A" to a "B" rating.

The shop has another inspection on July 15.

In addition to her donut licking, Grande was also heard in the video slamming America. "What the f**k is that? I hate Americans. I hate America. That's disgusting," she said in response to the baker bringing out a fresh batch of donuts.

The 22-year-old singer has since said sorry twice for her behavior.

"I apologize for my poor choice of words and my behavior," Grande said in her video apology. "Seeing how ugly it looks when you behave a certain way makes you never want to behave that way again. But, you know, you learn from it."

Do you think Grande should have gotten off without criminal charges?
