McDonalds Coffee Throw
(video shared via Reddit)

Nanaimo RCMP say they are close to concluding their investigation of an incident where a woman threw coffee at a McDonald’s drive-thru.

Dashcam footage from October 14 caught a woman on video walking up to a drive-thru window, throwing coffee at an employee inside, then walking away.

Police say the employee was not injured in the incident.

“This incident struck a nerve with many and the video of the incident was shared numerous times on social media,”  said Constable Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.

O’Brien says that following the release of the video, tips from the general public started pouring in. He says the information was extremely helpful to investigators and allowed them to narrow their suspect pool and to aggressively pursue the incident.

RCMP say they will be forwarding their report to Nanaimo Crown Counsel in upcoming weeks.
