SOUTH CAROLINA (WJBF) — You may want to think twice before using some four letter words in public…
A CSRA mother is facing charges after a witness says she used profanity toward her children.
A loaf of bread and a few choice words now have Danielle Wolf in hot water.
Wolf moved to South Carolina with her family three weeks ago and a night at a grocery store has her wanting to move back to Ohio.
“He was like, ‘You’re under arrest’…right in front of kids, in front of my husband, in front of customers.” said Wolf, of the North Augusta Department of Public Safety who arrested her.
Wolf recalls the night she was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at the Kroger store located on Knox Avenue, in North Augusta.
She says a woman shopping in the store followed Wolf and her family. “She’s like, ‘you said the f-word’, and I’m like, ‘when did I say this to my kids?” Wolf told us.
According to the incident report, Wolf was shopping at Kroger with her kids, going down the bread aisle, when they kept squeezing the bread and that’s when she said the word that got her arrested.

“It’s seems a little extreme,” said Amy Sawicz, who shops at the store.
Fellow shopper Terry Hunt said, “parents, we don’t guide our children in the proper way.”
Wolf says that’s not what happened. “She’s like, ‘you told 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,” said Wolf.
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,” said Wolf.
The woman who says she witnessed the incident said she saw Wolf use the f-word repeatedly and Wolf started cursing at her after she approached Wolf. The woman says she wasn’t having a bad day and that hearing Wolf use those words brought her back to her abusive childhood.
She has since received an apology from the woman who complained, which led to her arrest.
Wolf is due in court on September 12th.
