Phyllis Jefferson's temper may be as hot as her salsa.
Police in Akron, Ohio, said Jefferson, 50, allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the groin with a pen Sunday evening after he ate all the salsa in their house, Cleveland.com reports.
Jefferson's boyfriend, Ronnie D. Bucker, 61, told police that he and the accused were arguing about the salsa consumption when she allegedly stabbed him with the pen.
The suspect then walked over to the TV and threatened to knock it on the floor, according to Ohio.com.
When Buckner grabbed the TV, Jefferson allegedly walked to the kitchen to grab a knife and used it to cut him in the stomach.
Jefferson fled the scene while Buckner called 911. Responding officers found him on the floor clutching his stomach, Fox8.com reports.
Buckner was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries that were believed to be non-life threatening.
Jefferson was arrested a short time when officers pulled her over on the highway. She allegedly admitted to stabbing Buckner and said she did it "because she wanted to leave."
Jefferson was charged with felonious assault and criminal damaging and booked into the Summit County Jail, according to WKYC TV.
