The 911 calls were released Thursday from a three-hour standoff that stemmed from a fight over a grilled cheese sandwich in Dundalk. 

Daniel Blackwell barricaded himself in his home with several weapons Sunday after his wife took a bite from his grilled cheese sandwich. Blackwell's wife asked for help unloaded groceries and they started arguing. That's when things escalated.
