Man sentenced in Tim Hortons snake-throwing incident

One of the men charged after a snake was thrown in a Saskatoon Tim Hortons last year has received a six-month conditional discharge for mischief and causing a disturbance.

Christopher Cook, 21, will have to meet a number of conditions, including staying away from the Tim Hortons on the 600 block of 22nd Street W. 

The incident was recorded on video and received national attention last year. The video shows two young men arguing with a Tim Hortons employee, then throwing a garter snake over the counter.

Cook's co-accused, Luke Apooch, is currently being sought by police on a bench warrant.

Apooch said he was the snake's owner, and told CBC News he wants the reptile back.

Police took the snake, which they dubbed Outlaw, to a wildlife shelter and it was released into the wild.
