    Warrant Issued for Accused Coffee Thrower

    David Timbers of the 3700 block of Haverford Avenue.

    A bench warrant was issued today for the man who plead guilty in a hot coffee attack on a West Philadelphia donut shop employee.

    David Timbers was scheduled to appear in court today for his sentencing, but he never showed up, according to court records.

    Surveillance video from inside the Fresh Donut shop on Lancaster Avenue last year, shows Timbers throwing hot coffee on a worker, and can be heard saying "Take that." 

    Police say the dispute began when the clerk questioned Timbers as to whether he paid for his breakfast sandwich.

    The donut shop employee suffered burns on her arm.

    "I just want to ask that if she can find it in her heart to forgive me, not to forget, just to forgive because what I did was unforgiveable and I'd just like to say I'm truly sorry and I made a mistake," Timbers told NBC10 at his preliminary hearing last year.
