Toronto Man Steals Bus to Go to Tim Horton’s!
Sometimes, you just really, REALLY need your Timmy Ho's fix!
One Toronto man decided the best way to get his java on was to wield a knife and hijack a city bus. It didn't work out too well for him, but I was totally waiting for Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves to show up somewhere in this story.
Daniel Ferreira, 31, hopped on a Toronto bus on Friday, pulled a knife and forced the driver to drive like a proverbial bat out of hell, even making her run red lights to get to Tim Horton's faster.
He had her stop and wait while he went in to get his coffee. Naturally she called the cops while he was ordering. They got there quickly, and found him sitting at a table, casually sipping his double-double*.
He was charged with many fun, non-coffee-related crimes, like assault, mischief endangering life, uttering threats and forcible confinement.
Think THIS was the perfect Canadian crime? Think again. Remember this from last week?
Tune in next week for another episode of "That's So Canadian....."**
*there is no confirmation it was, in fact, a double-double.
**there is currently no "That's So Canadian", but it's worth thinking about... :)
