Saskatoon men charged with snake throwing following argument over sandwich toppings

Great jumping snakes.

Or throwing snakes, more precisely.

Two 20-year-old men were arrested Monday morning after tossing a snake behind the counter of a Saskatoon Tim Hortons restaurant, according to the Saskatoon Police Service.

Apparently the snake-throwing incident was the result of an argument about the preparation of their sandwiches. The men demanded that the onions on their sandwiches be diced, and the employee refused to accomodate it.

That's when one of the men reached into the pocket of his friend's coat and pulled out a snake, which he threw behind the counter with the employee.

Staff members were forced to evacuate the building until police arrived. According to the Saskatoon Police Service, officers were able to locate the snake and determine that it wasn't poisonous. They located the men responsible for throwing it nearby and took them into custody.

The two men have been charged with mischief and causing a disturbance. Saskatoon Police have found a temporary home for the snake until it can be released in the spring.
