Police have arrested an individual responsible for destroying a cash register at a Tim Hortons in British Columbia.
The reason why? Allegedly, the man had come in and ordered an Iced Capp but complained that the order was wrong.
According to a police report, on September 6, 2018, officers were called into a Tim Hortons in New Westminster after hearing reports of an assault in progress, at approximately 7:20 pm.
Video footage shows a man in a heated verbal exchange with staff, eventually pouring an Iced Capp onto the counter. After pacing back and forth, he pushes the computer register off the counter and leaves the store.
At one point, the suspect allegedly kicks and punches another customer who tries to intervene.
According to Jeff Scott, Spokesperson for the New Westminster Police Department (NWPD), the individual was recently apprehended.
“He was arrested in Powell River on October 15 and has since been released from custody on a Recognizance of Bail,” says Scott. “He’s scheduled to appear in BC Provincial Court on Wednesday, November 21.”
The suspect, whose name has not been released, faces the following charges:
- Two Counts of Assault, contrary to section 266 of the Criminal Code
- One count of Mischief under $5,000, contrary to section 430(4) of the Criminal Code
