(Scroll down for video) A woman went crazy after her boyfriend acknowledged that her cooking was just fine, according to police in New Hampshire.

The Merrimack Police Department said that on Saturday around 2:30 p.m., they were called to the Webster Green Condominium Complex for a domestic disturbance.

On the officers’ arrival, they were met by a resident who indicated that his girlfriend was inside their residence, and had assaulted him because he told her that the spaghetti dinner she prepared was just fine.

She punched him in the face and in the arm, and scratched his hand. The responding officers attempted to make contact with 33-year-old Jodi Ecklund.

However, she indicated to them that she would not come out of the residence and had access to firearms inside the residence with her.

Ecklund had also indicated she would harm the officers with the firearms if they attempted to enter the residence.

On the arrival of other members of the Merrimack Police Department, they were able to evacuate the building in which Ecklund was located.

The Merrimack Police Department’s Containment Team was activated to secure the scene. Several attempts to contact Ecklund were unsuccessful.

Officers were able to determine that Ecklund had begun to barricade herself within the apartment. With the assistance of the New Hampshire State Police, communication was eventually made with Ecklund.

During this time, Ecklund had destroyed numerous items located within the residence, which belonged to the victim.

After several hours, members of the Containment Team were able to take Ecklund into custody. Ecklund was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

She was later processed at the Merrimack Police Department and held on $25,000 cash bail.
