(KTVI) – It’s being called a “cookie confrontation.”  A Central Illinois man is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery after allegedly attacking his roommate over some chocolate chip cookies.

It happened in Decatur, Il. last week.  Police say Allen Hall, 23, choked his 49-year-old female roommate after she ate three of his ‘Chips Ahoy’ cookies.   The victim’s husband and the landlord both arrived just in time to pull him off her.  Hall is being held on $75,000 bond.

    I’ve known “big” people who oink down an entire package of chips ahoy every night, along with a half-gallon of ice cream. Don’t mess with someone’s food.

    Not to justify him choking his roommate over cookies or anything, but I’m sure there is more to this story than meets the eye. The roommate could’ve done way more things before this that lead up to this being the final straw, but ppl are always looking for a good story, and the whole man chokes roommate over cookie concept definitely grabs most ppl’s attention. Who knows how many other buttons she pushed of his before she got to this button? i’m just saying…. lol
