31-year-old cookie monster

Stay away from Hersha Howard's Thin Mints!

The Collier County woman was arrested Sunday after a savage beatdown of her roommate over a box of the delicious Girl Scout cookies that were apparently off limits to her kids, according to naplesnews.com.

The brawl began when the 31-year-old cookie monster confronted her sleeping roommate and accused her of eating the box of treats, police said. The roommate told Howard she'd given the cookies to Howard's kids, who were awake and hungry around 1 a.m.

The roommate offered to pay $10 for the cookies, but Howard wasn't having it, and began fighting with the other woman, police said. The roommate's husband pulled Howard off her so she could escape, but Howard took off after her.

According to a police report, Howard grabbed a pair of scissors and threatened the woman. When the woman started to run down some stairs, Howard allegedly dropped the scissors, picked up a board and hit the woman as she ran down the stairs.

Howard caught up to the woman again and knocked her to the ground and started to hit her. When the roommate managed to get outside the house, Howard grabbed a sign and started hitting her again, police said.

Police finally arrived and arrested Howard, charging her with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

No word on what dessert was served in jail.
