Thin Mint Cookie Brawl. A thin mint cookie was the cause of a brawl when one of the two roommates started a fight over the box. Hersha Howard bursted into her roommate’s room, Jasmin Wanke, and accused her of eating the Girl Scout snacks.
Howard, 31, was charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon. Wanke told deputies she was asleep when Howard burst into her bedroom and accused her of eating the cookies. She actually gave the thin mints to her roommate’s kids because they were awake and at at 1 a.m., according to a Collier County Sheriff’s Office report.
The women began to argue, then they started to brawl when Howard reportedly jumped on top of Wanke and struck her in the face. The two continued to fight until Wanke’s husband separated them. When Wanke walked out of the bedroom, Howard grabbed a pair of scissors and began chasing and threatening Wanke, the report said.
As women ran down the stairs, Howard reportedly dropped the scissors, picked up a board and struck Wanke. She then ran to the kitchen, where Howard confronted and attacked her again. During the fight, Howard bit Wanke in the breast and continued to hit her until the two were separated again, the report said.
The women ran out of the house, then Howard reportedly picked up a sign and struck Wanke with it several times. Wanke’s husband tackled Howard before deputies arrived and arrested her. She was taken to the Naples Jail Center for booking.
