NEW YORK (AP) -- A woman who couldn't get a beef patty at a favorite New York eatery used a baseball bat to smash up the place, cops say.

On Saturday, police released surveillance video of the woman in action in the Bronx, laying waste to a restaurant's windows after learning the eatery had run out of her favorite food.

Police say the woman at the Back Home restaurant in the Morrisania neighborhood came in on Jan. 15 and ordered a patty. She was told they'd run out, and she got upset.

Authorities say she left and came back to the Jamaican restaurant with the bat.

The video shows a woman bashing in two windows.
