NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. – A North Carolina mother is facing charges after using a four-letter curse word at a grocery store.
“You’re under arrest,’ right in front of my kids, in front of my husband, in front of customers,” said Danielle Wolf.
Wolf recalls the night she was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at a Kroger store.
She says a woman shopping in the store followed her and her family.
“And she’s like, ‘You said the f-word,’ But, like, she said it and I’m like, ‘When did I say this to my kids?’ asked Wolf.
According to the incident report, Danielle Wolf was shopping when her kids kept squeezing the bread.
That’s when authorities say she said the word that got her arrested.
However, Wolf says that is not what happened.
“She’s like, ‘You told them that they were smashing the bread.’ And I said, ‘No, I said that to my husband that he was smashing the bread by throwing the frozen pizzas on top of it,” Wolf said.
According to North Augusta law, disorderly conduct generally means to “utter, while in a state of anger, in the presence of another, any bawdy, lewd or obscene words or epithets.”
Wolf says the woman later said she didn’t want her arrested but it was too late.
“I didn’t harm nobody. I didn’t hurt nobody. The lady said she was having a bad day. So, because you’re having a bad day you’re going to ruin somebody’s life?” she said.
The woman who witnessed the incident says she was not having a bad day.
However, she says she heard Wolf use the word in question repeatedly.
Police wouldn’t comment on the case.
Wolf is due in court Sept. 12.
