Philadelphia, PA — A man got himself into some trouble after throwing a child-like temper tantrum inside a Philadelphia donut shop and throwing a cup of hot coffee in the face of the clerk arguing with him over an unpaid sandwich.

The incident happened earlier this month inside the Fresh Donuts store in West Philadelphia and it was all captured on tape. The man, 52-year-old David Timbers, can be seen arguing with the clerk over a $2.40 sandwich that he insisted he paid for.

When the clerk, 27-year-old Sukia Luy, continues to insist that he had not paid for the sandwich, Timbers grabs a cup of hot coffee and throws it in her face. Luckily she had quick reflexes and only suffered second-degree burns to the arm she used to shield her face.

The store owner confronted Timbers who can be heard responding, “I don’t give a (expletive). I paid her! She told me I didn’t, so she can take that and keep the sandwich.”

Eyewitnesses say that the owner tried to stop Timbers from leaving, but Timbers and another man got into a gold Cadillac and left before police arrived.

Timbers’ sister told reporters that he called her up crying after the altercation. “He was scared to come forward of course without an attorney present,” she said. “He said, ‘I really screwed up, I was upset.’ He was upset about things. He hadn’t been taking his medication.”

David Timbers would turn himself in to police on Monday on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. By this morning, he was out after posting 10 percent of $25,000 bail.

“You all harassing me like this? Go and find yourselves some real stories,” Timbers said to NBC10 as he left police headquarters.

Oh, aside from showing Timbers assaulting the clerk with the coffee, the surveillance video also showed he never paid for his sandwich.
