    The way a woman ordered food at a Fort Worth fast food restaurant has started a criminal investigation.

    Video taken by an employee inside the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in the 1700 block of Eastchase Parkway Monday night showed an angry customer hitting an employee with a tray, while another upset customer tries to jump over the counter.

    The employee being assaulted in the video said it all started because the woman wanted free drinks. 

    "That's when the lady told me I was being rude, I told her, 'Ma'am have a nice day,' and I turned around, she came back and threw the bag of chicken on the counter and told me she wanted her money back," Wendy Rodriguez said.

    Fort Worth police said the angry customers left the restaurant in a four-door silver or gray hatchback and that the woman could face assault charges.
