A Florida woman allegedly went ballistic on her roommate because she believed the woman had gobbled her Girl Scout cookies.

Hersha Howard was arrested Sunday after a battle royale that ravaged the entire apartment, according to police.

The 31-year-old Naples resident allegedly first attacked Jasmin Wanke around 1 a.m. while she was sleeping – launching an angry rant about missing Thin Mints, Wanke told authorities.

The chocolate-coated mint wafers are one of the most popular of the Girl Scout varieties, and are only available once a year.

The two argued about the cookies, then Wanke claims Howard – who according to the police report weighs 400 pounds – jumped on her and hit her in the face. They fought until Wanke’s husband pulled them apart.

Howard then allegedly chased after Wanke with a pair of scissors, police were told. Howard ditched the cutting implements, however, and instead picked up a board and whacked Wanke.

The fight moved into the kitchen, where Howard allegedly hurled her heft at Wanke again. As they fought, Howard bit Wanke’s breast and struck her several times.

Wanke’s husband once against separated the pair, and kept Howard restrained until cops arrived, police said.

Howard was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Hersha Howard alleged hit and bit her roommate over Girl Scout cookies, police say.
