Judge fines ruffian for hurling muffin
Fritter-less Tim Hortons customer tries snack attack

ORILLIA, Ont. (CP) – Assault with an apple muffin has drawn a $345 fine for a central Ontario man.

Everett Charles acted “like a young, immature child,” Judge Leonard Montgomery said.

“You are supposed to be an adult,” Montgomery told Charles after the 28-yar-old pleaded guilty Monday to assaulting a Tim Hortons server.

Court was told that Charles pulled up to a drive-trough window at the popular coffee and doughnut outlet on the night of September 5.

When Charles discovered a muffin in his takeout bag instead of the apple fritter he had ordered, he stormed back to the window and tossed the muffin at the employee, striking her in the chest, said prosecutor Robert Gatrell.

Charles has written a one-page apology to the Tim Hortons employee, defense counsel Carl Garland told the court.

After scanning Charles’ letter, Montgomery told the Orillia court that “I’m convinced that he is remorseful.”
