GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. - A man apparently in dire need of a coffee is now in need of a lawyer after police say he pulled a pellet gun on a fellow Tim Hortons drive-thru customer.

A 25-year old man is facing a number of charges after he allegedly cut into the drive-through line at the Timmies around 12:45 p.m. Friday.

When confronted by another customer, the man allegedly produced what appeared to be a handgun before taking off.

RCMP pulled the man over and found a pellet gun in the vehicle. He faces charges of possession of a firearm, impaired driving and possession of a controlled substance.

He is due back in court May 9.
