NORTH AUGUSTA, South Carolina (PIX11) — A shopper’s complaint that a woman was using profanity toward her children in a grocery store ended in the mother’s arrest.

It happened Aug. 10 at a Kroger on Knox Avenue in North Augusta, South Carolina.

Danielle Wolf was grocery shopping with her husband and children when another shopper overheard her using profanity with her kids, WJBF reported.

“Stop squishing the f—— bread,” she allegedly told them.

The witness, who was not named in a police report obtained by WJBF, “requested that she not use that language towards her children.”

A police officer arrived at the scene and asked the witness if she would be willing to testify in court about the incident, and she said yes.

Soon after, Wolf was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, which under North August law means to “utter, while in a state of anger, in the presence of another, any bawdy, lewd or obscene words or epithets.”

“He was like, ‘You’re under arrest,’ right in front of kids, in front of my husband, in front of customers,” Wolf recalled to WJBF.

And Wolf said the witness’ version of what happened isn’t accurate.

She said she told her husband that he was squishing the bread by tossing frozen pizzas on top of it.

“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?” Wolf said.

The woman who reported Wolf’s language has since called her to apologize, the news outlet reported in an Aug. 15 update.
