Panama City Beach - A bikini-clad woman who is accused of starting a brawl at a Burger King in Panama City Beach is now facing a felony charge over an incident that was captured on video and has been viewed thousands of times on YouTube.

In the video, a woman identified as Kimesa Smith of Montgomery, Alabama, is seen hitting and throwing items at employees, jumping onto the counter and hitting someone with a large container.

After the March 19 incident, the 31-year-old Smith was charged with misdemeanour battery.

On Friday however, Florida authorities added a charge of felony criminal mischief with damage of more than $1 000, as well as disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

One of the fast food chain's employees told authorities Smith was complaining about her order when the fight began.
