A Tim Hortons employee in Michigan is facing criminal charges for allegedly throwing coffee at a woman during an argument last month.
Dusty Jackson, 41, reported to Southgate police that an employee refused to add Timbits – small doughnut holes – to her order. She described the 16-year-inability old’s to fulfil the request as “a little f—-ed up” and “stupid.”
Jackson used an expletive towards the employee, and the employee hurled a cup of coffee at the woman, according to FOX 2 Detroit.

After exchanging expletives and ‘warm’ coffee, an argument over doughnut bites devolved into a criminal investigation.
Because the coffee was warm, not hot, Jackson sustained only minor burns and declined medical treatment.
However, she has chosen to sue Tim Hortons in connection with the Oct. 30 incident.
Jackson’s attorney, Abdallah Moughni, stated that if the coffee had been “black,” his client would have been “permanently disfigured.”

Police launched an investigation into the incident, but Moughni blames Tim Hortons for a similar incident in 2015.
“The blame should be shifted away from the girl who threw the coffee and towards the guys in charge,” he said. “The Tim Hortons Corporation, which permits this franchise and hundreds of others to train, supervise, and employ their employees in an ineffective manner.”
Another witness to the incident stated that the victim “was simply nasty from the start.”
Tim Hortons spokesperson Michael Oliveira told Click On Detroit that the company does not comment on pending litigation.
“However, I can state that Tim Hortons franchisees are expected to adhere to our brand’s stringent standards and high standards for guest experience, and that we are currently investigating the matter with the franchisee who operates the restaurant,” Oliveira added.
