(Scroll down for video) An NYPD (New York Police Department) officer was left without a job after she was seen on video throwing a tantrum and threatening employees over chocolate.

Amanda Villafane was off-duty when she decided to get some chocolate from the Godiva store in Stamford Town Center, Connecticut.

As she entered the store with her mother and boyfriend at 6:00 p.m., she was told that the store was closing and that she had to leave.

In the video, which was taken by a store employee, Villafane was heard saying that the door was open “so obviously the store was not closed.”

When store employees insisted that the group needed to leave, the NYPD officer took off her jacket, started yelling, and threw a tantrum.

Her boyfriend, Christopher Salvadore, 32, tried to calm her down.

However, according to witnesses, when Salvadore saw an employee recording the officer’s behavior, he punched the worker in the face, leaving him with a bloody nose.

When officers arrived, Villafane allegedly flashed her police badge and refused to be handcuffed. She was reportedly wrestled to the ground and handcuffed.

Villafane has been charged with criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct and interfering with police. She was suspended from the force without pay.

Her boyfriend was charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
