A police report says 61-year-old Ronnie Buckner told officers he was eating salsa with his girlfriend, Phyllis Jefferson, at his Akron, Ohio, apartment Sunday when she started complaining that he was eating all of it. Buckner told police that 50-year-old Jefferson then started yelling and stabbed him with a pen.

Police say they later stopped and arrested Jefferson on Interstate 77.
She’s also charged with misdemeanor criminal endangering. Court records list no attorney for her.
Buckner was hospitalized for his injuries.
