NEW BERN, N.C. (WHAS11) -- A North Carolina woman became furious after a vending machine took her money so she took out her frustration in an extreme way.

It happened in New Bern, North Carolina. Police say the woman was upset when the vending machine outside a Piggly Wiggly store didn't give her a drink.

First she kicks the machine and then she stuffs a lit newspaper inside it.

She gets a drink from another vending machine and walks away. Minutes later, the machine goes up in flames.

“What an idiot. You could've received your money back in five or six hours,” Gilbert Crary, store employee, said. 

The woman faces two felony charges.

In court she told the judge she didn't need an attorney because she's guilty.
