Vin Diesel’s movies have grossed approximately $3.5 billion at the box office, so you’d think the actor star wouldn’t have to resort to stealing glass ice cream sundae dishes, but that’s exactly what happened at Scoop DeVille in Hartford, Wisconsin, this week.

The star of the Fast and the Furious franchise stopped by the shop on Tuesday while visiting some family in the area. He ordered a hot fudge sundae with nuts and whipped cream, and then proceeded to walk out of the shop with the elaborate treat — and its serving dish — in his hand, like a damn Roman emperor. Here’s a video of the Chronicles of Riddick star greeting fans out on the street, while clutching the sundae glass:

But Ray and Carrie Stelzer, the proprietors of Scoop DeVille, aren’t mad at Vin for deciding to help himself to one of their old-timey sundae dishes. The Journal Sentinel reports that they actually “enjoyed” his visit to their shop and don’t even want him to return the ice cream container.

In other Diesel news, the voice of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy returned to his alma mater, Hunter College in New York City, this week to collect an honorary doctorate. “While I was in Hollywood I always had this pride of Hunter College,” he told the crowd. ”I would tell everybody that I learned and took so much away from my experience at Hunter College.” And now he can also say that he took so much away from his experience at Scoop DeVille in Hartford, Wisconsin, too.
