A woman could be facing charges after an irate confrontation ended with her throwing feces at the staff of a Tim Hortons in Langley, British Columbia.
A viral video of surveillance footage from the B.C. Tim Hortons shows a woman screaming at a server before she leans against a wall, pulls down her pants, squats and defecates on the floor. Note: There is no sound on the video below.
The woman then picks up her feces and throws it at staff. She is then seen wiping her butt with some napkins before throwing those at employees as well.
WARNING: Video is of graphic nature.
A spokesperson for Tim Hortons told Global News they are “deeply concerned by this video as the safety of [their] team members and guests is always a top priority for [them].”
“In limited cases across the country, restaurants have a restricted access policy for restrooms to ensure the well-being of our guests,” the spokesperson said.
“Our current understanding is that the team member used their discretion in this case and denied access to this guest based on past behaviour and out of concern for the immediate safety of team members and guests in the restaurant. As matters escalated, the team member contacted local authorities for assistance.
Tim Hortons says it is continuing to work with the owner of the restaurant to further look into the matter.
Langley RCMP confirmed the incident, noting that the unnamed woman was arrested and later released from their custody to appear in court at a later date.
The case is being reviewed to see if charges will be laid by the B.C. Prosecution Service.
