All this, police say, because of her boyfriend’s lackluster comment about the spaghetti dinner she dished up for him.
Jason Martin told police Ecklund made him a spaghetti dinner, asking him afterward what he thought about it. “It was OK,” he replied. It was then, he said, she went all kinds of bipolar on him.
Martin claims Ecklund punched him in the face and arm and scratched his hand. After he left the apartment, he said, Ecklund locked the door.
When police arrived on scene, they were informed by Martin that there were guns in the home — a Glock 9mm and a M4 rifle.
Police could hear Ecklund yelling inside of the apartment, screaming at them to “get the (bleep) out of there!” She threatened to kill the officers if they entered, and/or harm herself.
When police attempted to gain entrance, Ecklund told them to go right ahead…. she had the safety off.
Ecklund then started destroying the boyfriend’s shit and throwing it out the window. A speaker that went flying apparently hit another residence, damaging a window.
Ecklund was eventually taken into custody. She’s now facing two counts of criminal mischief, two counts of criminal threatening and two counts of reckless conduct… all felonies. She’s also been charged with three misdemeanor counts of domestic violence.
She was placed on $25,000 cash bail, which could be converted to personal recognizance if accepted into the Hampstead Hospital for inpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment, or a similar program that consists of a minimum of 28-days. The bail would revert back to cash once she was discharged or completed the program.Tags: criminal mischief, Domestic Violence, Jodi Ecklund, Merrimack, New Hampshire, threatening
