A Tim Hortons employee was fired immediately after a Sault Ste. Marie franchise owner learned of a verbal assault on a paying customer. A video posted by Jacqueline Perras that captured the entire ordeal earlier this week has since gone viral.
In the video, Perras says she was at the local Tim Hortons where she bought a person in need a sandwich and a coffee. While sitting in the restaurant, she decided to take a selfie with the person. Parras states it was at this time that a night shift worker told her that she could not take photos inside the restaurant. When she asked the male employee why, he told her that she could be “robbing the place.” A confrontation ensued where the employee became verbally abusive with Parras.

Perras, who is seen on camera, explains what happened and confronts the employee who became rude and disrespectful. He gets into a yelling match with Perras and tells her to “shut the f**k up and sit your fat a** down”. The police were called.
When Perras talked to Police, also captured on the video posted on social media, she was informed that the employee had the right to ask her to leave the establishment. The officer then informs her that she could be arrested if she doesn’t comply.
Perras was on her way home to Southern Ontario on December 7th when she stopped at the local Tim Hortons restaurant at around 2 am. The restaurant appears to be empty at the time the confrontation took place.
