MIAMI — A woman was arrested Monday on multiple charges and another is being sought in connection with the attack on a Miami Burger King manager over a request for free french fries.
WTVJ reported that Natasha Ethel Bagley, 42, was charged with attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, armed burglary with assault or battery and criminal mischief, according to the arrest report.
The second woman, Genesis Peguero, 27, is still at large, according to the report.
In the April 2 incident, the two women went through the Burger King drive-thru and asked for free fries. When an employee denied the request, they went into the restaurant, causing a distraction, according to the report, WTVJ reported.

The report said the manager was punched in the face when she tried to call police on the phone. Bagley is accused of jumping over the counter and joined in the attack on the manager, according to WTVJ.
The two women eventually left the restaurant, in an SUV police say is registered to Bagley. Victims identified her as one of the two women involved in the incident, according to the arrest report.
According to Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation records, Bagley remains in jail and held without bail as of Tuesday, according to the local news station.
