A woman is suing a Chicago restaurant and its employee for $50,000 after she claims she was violently thrown through a glass door for requesting extra packets of sauce.  

A lawsuit filed this week in Cook County Court states the incident happened after Chicago resident Tiawanda Shears placed a to-go order at the New China Wok Limited, at 752 W. Garfield Blvd., on May 14.

After receiving her food, Shears noticed the order contained only one sauce packet and “politely” asked employee Hui Tian Wu for more sauce, according to the lawsuit.

 
The request allegedly caused Wu to “become enraged” and come from behind the pick-up counter to attack Shears, “violently pushing her the glass front door causing the glass door to shatter” and severely injure Shears’ leg, according to the suit.
 
Shears is suing Wu and the restaurant for battery and negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
