PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The man who allegedly threw hot coffee on a donut shop employee in an apparent dispute over $2.40 turned himself Monday evening, according to authorities.

Fifty-two-year-old David Timbers of the 3700 block of Haverford Avenue showed up at police headquarters with his lawyer Chaka Johnson a little before 5 p.m.

Authorities say at about 11 a.m. on May 8th, inside the Fresh Donuts store in the 3900 block of Lancaster Avenue, Timbers got into an argument over payment of a sandwich. The clerk maintained he did not pay and the dispute over $2.40 ended with the man grabbing a cup of hot coffee from the employee’s hand and throwing it on her (see related story).

The victim suffered second degree burns on her arm. Her face would have taken the hit if she hadn’t shielded her face.

Timbers is being charged with aggravated and simple assault, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person.
