(NBC) - Police in New York are looking for a woman who smashed a window of a Popeyes restaurant because a soda didn't come with her meal.

The incident happened at a Staten Island Popeyes around 8:30 p.m. on April 8.

Security video shows a woman flipping off employees, then attacking the window with a sign.

She then takes a chair and uses it to smash one of the windows.

An employee said the woman was drunk and angry because their $4 "Wicked Good" deal didn't come with a soda.

Employees tried to explain what comes with the deal and told her maybe she was thinking of the Wendy's 4-for-4 deal.  But the woman was so irate she couldn't be reasoned with, according to a police report.

NYPD is asking for help identifying the woman, who is thought to be a black woman between 18- and 25-years-old last seen wearing a pink bandana, a pink shirt, jeans and a black jacket.
