An employee who didn't want to be identified told News 4 the customer was drunk, and angry because the $4 Wicked Good Deal didn't come with a soda. Employees tried to explain that the deal includes an order of Wicked Chicken strips plus a side, a buttermilk biscuit and dipping sauce, but does not include a soft drink. They told her she was confused and may have been thinking of Wendy's $4 meal deal, but she was so irate she couldn't be reasoned with, the employee said.

"Hopefully they find her, I don't want her in this store," the employee said. 

The NYPD is asking for help identifying the woman, last seen wearing a pink bandana, black jacket and jeans. Police think she's an adult between 18 and 25, though the tantrum she threw over a soda suggests otherwise.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
