The manager at Popeyes told deputies that Miller drove her SUV into the east entrance of the restaurant after she became upset because her order did not have any biscuits, the Chronicle reported, citing an incident report.
The manager told police that before the crash, the mistake was corrected and Miller was given her biscuits, WJBF-TV reported. However, the manager said that Miller was still unhappy.
One of the employees, who was standing near the entrance to the restaurant, was almost struck by the SUV when Miller allegedly crashed her vehicle into the building, the Chronicle reported.

Miller’s vehicle was later found at her home with front-end damage, the newspaper reported.
