An unidentified woman dropped her pants, defecated and threw her feces inside a Tim Hortons restaurant on May 14 in Langley City, British Columbia, Canada.
Employees refused the woman use of the restroom, based on her past behavior and safety concerns, so she took things into her own hands, notes The Abbotsford News.
Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP, said the police were called and the woman was arrested, but it’s not clear what the charges will be.
A Tim Hortons spokesperson issued a statement:
We strive to create a welcoming environment for all of our guests and the communities we serve. 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.
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.
