Police chased him on foot into the crowded coffee shop. When he resisted, an officer used the spray, police said. No other injuries were reported. At least seven officers were on hand during the struggle.

Jeez, the police station likely had fewer officers in it.

Tim Horton's is the litmus test for low-intelligent narcissists:
"Hey look, the drive-through is full. We'll I'll just stop my giant hyuk-truck on the road and block traffic so I can get my double-double".

Well what else can you do when there isn't any Dunkin Donuts? You have to find the next best option

This is because the Eaton's Centre shooter (Christopher Husbands) was out on bail, and house arrest at the time of the shooting.

The cops, now, are overcompensating.

Tim Horton's is worth risking a great many things, eh!

/Gonna fly to Buffalo, drive to Timmy Ho Ho's near the border, then hit as many locations as possible while enroute to Toronto!

Be careful there subby... as a resident of Buffalo, where Starbucks cowers at the caffeinated might of Tim Horton's you're treading on hallowed ground. Make fun our sports teams, our weather, our high poverty rate, high illiteracy rate, corrupt politicians.... geez, basically anything else, but don't mess with Tim Hortons!

I was in Montreal back in 2003 and there was a Tim Horton's down the street from the Hotel. Thought everything there was very good, superior in fact to Dunkin' Donuts.....has the quality of Tim Horton's gone down since then?

Not in my opinion. I used to live near a TH and I miss it a LOT. Moved to the boonies where there is a single DD and nothing else, and apparently the DD was a Big Deal when it opened. I consider their coffee inferior tasting and overpriced in comparison, and they don't make the donuts on location anymore unlike TH. TH is a treat for me when I got up to Rochester.

/pining for Tim Hortons.
//Mmmm chocolate glazed...

Going going to Tim Hortons was likely the only reasonable choice he has made in a while.

I too fly in to Roch twice a year and really enjoy visitingTim Horton's! I'm glad to see there are more of them opening in NY and have found one in PA as well. Wish they would make in down to FL. Agree that DD coffee tastes like.....meh.

To be fair, probably one officer chased him into the Tim Hortons and six were already there.

They even have them in Ohio, somehow; have found a few of them when driving out to see family in IN. I'm honestly sort of ashamed to own stock in DD but it seemed like a good idea at the time; at least it's gone up some since I bought it...

I'm a peaceful man, I truly am.

But when some redneck f*cking jackass with his lifted F-150, truck nutz, ridiculous window tinting and white rimmed sunglasses pulls that sh*t, I want to beat him to death with a barbed lacrosse stick.

Wait a second.

"At least seven officers were on hand during the struggle."

"No other injuries were reported."

"When he resisted, an officer used the spray,"

Does anyone see anything wrong with this?

There's some argument that since they switched to having all their baked goods pre-baked that Timmies has gone downhill.
There's also the big push for fancier offerings (like the sandwiches, the omelet stuff and the soups) that turns off the purists.

The thing is, the coffee's still good and for the most part the service standards are staying amazing...so it's good. Although I hate that every goddamn restaurant franchise these days tries to go "gourmet" and fancy....so far they haven't messed with the coffee so we're all good.

I luvs me mah double double.

Tim Hortons is horrible. Weak coffee and bad pasteries. While Sbux is no paragon of coffee brewing, it certainly is better than Tim Hortons. Lately though I've been frequenting. Crazy Mocha

I was actually driving by that intersection and saw them dragging him out and stuffing him into the back of a cop car. I didn't expect it to make Fark, we are talking about the bad part of Scarborough here.

The place was surrounded by five police cars, there might as well have been a hostage situation going on there.

Wait, when did they start baking offsite? I don't remember when I got the 'hot out of the oven, glaze still dripping onto my passenger seat' donut, but I didn't think it was THAT long ago. Come to think of it though, it might have been two cars gone O.o

At any rate, TRAITORS if so.

Do not understand the Tim Horton's hate

I was just in Canada a few weeks ago (Onatrio, Quebec, Maritimes), and just about every morning I get a TH coffee and a couple of old fashioned plain and... its heaven...something about dipping them in Tim's coffee

Some Tim's are really good...others not so. Do get a kick out of how so many there are of them. The 1km I walked from where I stayed in Halifax I passed 5 seperate Tim Horton's locations.

Also, I like Second Cup coffee...another Canadian place that has good coffee

Would love to have both Tim's and Second Cup in Florida
