Watch your Mouth in North Augusta, SC
Wolf, age 22, moved to South Carolina with her family 3 weeks ago but 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 around 10:15 pm Sunday, 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.
Yes, I would concur with that assessment.
Although, technically, she broke the law (and the presence of her kids, regardless of the headline, would not seem to be the issue):
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."
One guesses, however, that if that law were fully enforced the jails of North Augusta, SC would be overflowing with inmates.
