An irate woman who got into a heated argument with staff at a Langley Tim Horton’s on Monday could be facing serious charges after defecating in the premises and then throwing her feces at staff.
On Wednesday, the footage from the surveillance cameras at Tim Horton’s of the staff being harassed and was shared on social media websites.
The video footage, which has no sound, shows the scene unfold as we see a woman screaming at the staff before pulling down her pants and defecating on the floor.
She the proceeds to pick up her feces and throws it at the staff behind the counter.
Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy confirmed that RCMP received a complaint about the incident.
She stated that they had apprehended the woman, who has since been released, but is due to attend a court sitting at a later date.
The B.C. Prosecution Service will review the footage of the incident and the circumstance surrounding it to determine if charges will be laid.
According to reports, a Tim Horton employee had refused to give the woman access to the establishments restrooms.
“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 Horton’s said in a statement.
The company said that 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.

Do you think she should face charges? Or should they have left her use the restroom?
