Deputies from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the fast food chicken restaurant in Augusta after a call came in regarding an accident with injuries, an arrest report shows.
Deputies said they spoke with the manager, who said the customer, later identified as 50-year-old Belinda Miller, “became upset that her order did not have any biscuits” and allegedly drove her Toyota RAV4 into one of the entrances of the restaurant.
According to the manager, an employees was almost hit by the suspect’s SUV.
A witness was standing in the parking lot and allegedly saw Miller smash the SUV into the side of the restaurant and then drive off, police said.
Investigators interviewed another witness, who claimed she was waiting in line inside the restaurant when Miller told her to “hurry up and get her order because she was coming back in there.”
Before driving into the building, Miller allegedly was making threats to the staff and then drove away, the manager said.
Miller then called the Popeyes a few minutes later and police said she warned she was “already on papers and would drive her vehicle into the building.”
