Shocking videos have emerged of customers arguing with workers at Popeyes outlets in two separate locations as the return of the popular chicken sandwich sparks frenzied scenes nationwide. 

A cashier and customer are seen throwing trays at each other at a Popeyes restaurant in San Antonio in one video which surfaced on Friday. 

Meanwhile in another unidentified outlet, a male customer is seen throwing an entire bucket of tea over a worker after he reportedly couldn't get a chicken sandwich. 

The first video, which has gone viral with over 250,000 views, shows a cashier growing irate at a young female customer and throwing a red tray at her.

The customer is then heard screaming at the female cashier and lunges forward to jump over the counter as the worker says 'B****h look behind you.' 

She proceeds to throw the tray back at her, and a man in a veteran's cap then intervenes and pulls the customer away from the counter during the incident.

The customer's friend can be heard saying in the background: 'She's not worth it.'

@Espinosa35_, the twitter user who posted the video Tuesday, claimed: 'Lmaooo yoooo San Antonio was Wild for the Popeyes chicken sandwich today ... this was on the southside.'

The incident occurred at Popeyes at 2225 SW Military Drive around 3.45 pm on Tuesday, a bystander told KSAT.

'I'm not really sure what happened but the lady and the employee were yelling at each other and the cashier just started throwing trays,'  the female witness said. 

She said that she saw the employee instigate the fight by throwing the tray and she allegedly threw tea at her.  

'The veteran took the lady outside and the manager followed them outside... and they physically got into a fist fight,' Valarie said of the woman and the manager.  

Meanwhile another incident which appeared to happen on Wednesday, a man is seen throwing an entire bucket of tea at a Popeyes worker after he was angry that he couldn't get a chicken sandwich. 

Chaos then ensues as the worker then throws the container back across the counter at him as a female companion with the man gets involved and starts throwing food. 

The fights are the latest in a series of disturbing incidents, including a fatal stabbing, to have occurred at Popeyes restaurant chain in different locations.

On Monday, a Popeyes customer was stabbed to death over the restocked chicken sandwich during nationwide chaos over its return to the menu. 

The incident happened at a branch of the fast food chain in Oxon Hill, Maryland on Monday night and was sparked by someone cutting in line, according to police. 

Prince George's County Police Chief Hank Stawinski appealed for the public's help in identifying the man who fatally stabbed 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis following a dispute.

Stawinski said only 15 seconds elapsed from when the altercation started to when it ended with the stabbing. 

Davis had been "methodically" cutting his way through the line for sandwiches for 15 minutes before the suspect confronted him at the front counter, the chief said.

'The question my detectives have to answer is, 'How does a confrontation lead to a homicide in 15 seconds?'' Stawinski told reporters outside a police station in Upper Marlboro. 

The family of the individual who was killed is looking for closure. The families and children who were in this restaurant are looking for closure.'

Popeyes resumed selling its chicken sandwich on Sunday. It was first released in August, and the chain credited popular demand to its supply selling out that month. 

Marketing around the sandwich has built a frenzy that's causing long lines and waits at the chain's restaurants. Stawinski said dozens of people were at the restaurant at the time.
