OKLAHOMA CITY -- Employees of an Oklahoma City Taco Bell called police early Tuesday morning to report a woman who was chasing them around the store with what they thought was a crowbar.

They said the woman was threatening them and demanding money, as she allegedly destroyed the cash registers with the weapon, according to KFOR.

Zette Madden, 52, also walked around the building smashing the glass in entrance doors and the drive-thru window as well as the drive-thru menu, causing thousands of dollars in damages, police said.

When Officer Phillip Paz arrived at the Taco Bell, police body cam video captured Madden standing on the other side of the smashed glass.

Paz told Madden seven times to drop the weapon, which he then identified as a tire iron.

A large baseball-sized rock was also seen on the floor next to Madden.

Madden ignored his repeated demands, opened the shattered glass door, then yelled out "I come in here and spend hundreds of dollars, but the (expletive)" - the officer didn't give her a chance to finish her sentence, writing in his report he used his taser because he feared Madden would again turn back to threaten employees.

After being tased, Madden was cooperative and taken to a local hospital to treat the cuts on her hands from broken glass.

Taco Bell employees have dealt with Madden in the past, saying she trespassed inside the restaurant and allegedly tried to steal soda.

Madden remains in the Oklahoma County Jail on charges of malicious injury and destruction of property, robbery in the first degree and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
