Woman detained after feces flinging incident at Langley Tim Hortons.
On Wednesday, surveillance video showing Tim Hortons staff being harassed was posted on Liveleak and YouTube.
In the video, which has no sound, a woman can be seen screaming at staff before squatting on the floor and relieving herself. She then picks up the excrement and throws it at staff.
Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy confirmed that RCMP received a complaint
She said a woman was detained and released, but it to attend court at a later date.
The B.C. Prosecution Service will review the circumstances and determine if charges will be laid.
The Tim Hortons employee had apparently denied the woman access to the restroom.
“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 said in a statement.
The company says they are working with the franchise owner and will be “looking into this matter further.”
“We are deeply concerned by this video as the safety of our team members and guests is always a top priority for us. In limited cases across the country, Restaurants have a restricted access policy for restrooms to ensure the well-being of our guests,” the statement said.
