According to the (Decatur) Herald & Review, an Illinois made became so angry that he tried to kill his roommate over three missing chocolate chip cookies.
Police allege that Hall turned angry Wednesday morning when he learned his 49-year-old roommate ate three Chips Ahoy! cookies for breakfast. The victim said she was in the bathroom getting dressed when he pounded on the door, threatening to kill her.
“If you are going to kill me then go ahead,” the victim said she told Hall, thinking he was joking.
He then grabbed her with both hands, threw her down on the tub, and began to squeeze her throat, police said. The woman’s husband and the landlord ultimately separated the two.
The man remains jailed in lieu of $75,000 bond. There is no update on how many cookies the victim has eaten since the attack.
