A video has emerged online that reportedly shows Tim Hortons customers throwing a live snake at staff behind the counter at a Saskatoon restaurant last month.
Saskatoon radio station CKOM has posted a video to YouTube that, it says, depicts a widely reported incident in which a garter snake was tossed in a cashier's direction.
Accused 20-year-olds Luke Wesley Apooch and Christopher Jordon Cook were expected in court on Monday, on charges of mischief and causing a disturbance in connection with the incident.
Apooch, whom CKOM said posted the video on the Internet (it was on his own Facebook account, according to the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix), did not appear in court and a bench warrant was issued.
Cook's case, meanwhile, has been sent to mediation, and he is to appear in court again on Feb. 23.
The four-and-a-half-minute video shows two men approaching the counter at a Tim Hortons.
Both speak with slurred speech and one can be seen drinking a beer.
Late in the video, both men are ordering sandwiches when one asks for "sliced and diced" tomatoes and onions.
He then says, "I'm going to release my snake."
The two men can then be heard laughing, while a shriek can be heard from someone else before the video shows what appears to be a snake on the floor behind the counter.
The men can still be heard laughing as this is shown.
No one was hurt in the incident, said the Star-Phoenix, nor was "Outlaw," the garter snake thrown behind the counter, according to police.
