Police in New Westminster, B.C., have released video of a Tim Hortons customer who became irate after staff got his order for an Iced Capp wrong.

On Sept. 6, the man began insulting staff after he got his drink and then poured it over the counter before pushing the register off the counter at the Carnarvon Street location, police say.

He then also allegedly kicked and punched another customer who tried to intervene.

The man, who is now wanted for alleged assault and mischief, is described as a white, approximately 20-25 years old, medium build, approximately five feet six inches in height, with short brown hair. He was wearing a pink T-shirt and black pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call the New Westminster Police at 604-525-5411.
