Everybody loves Girl Scout cookies, but not everybody loves them this much: A Florida woman is in jail on charges of beating up her roommate Sunday in a dispute over Thin Mints. Hersha Howard, 31, is accused of bursting into Jasmin Wanke’s room while she slept and accusing Wanke of eating her cookies. Howard then allegedly jumped on top of Wanke and hit her in the face, chased her with a pair of scissors, struck her with a board, bit her in the breast, then hit her with a sign she found outside. Howard was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, ABC-7 reports. (More Girl Scout cookies stories.)
