Jodi Ecklund prepared her boyfriend, Jason Martin, a pasta dinner. When she asked him how it was, he replied it was “OK.” Bad move. Reportedly, Ecklund proceeded to punch him in the head, throw a bunch of his stuff into the parking lot, and barricade herself in the apartment with a firearm.
The ensuing standoff with police lasted for hours until Ecklund finally surrendered. She faces a bunch of charges, including criminal mischief, domestic violence simple assault, criminal threatening, and reckless conduct.
Ecklund says the debacle was unlike her and was a result of her bipolar disorder.
