According to an incident report, her children were squeezing out loaves of bread, prompting her foul language.

“Stop crushing the damn bread,” Wolf reportedly said.

However, she claimed that she was speaking to her husband and not to their two children.

The North Augusta Department of Public Safety’s incident report, obtained by HuffPost, revealed that the mother also said “similar phrases on a number of occasions.”

Another person approached Wolf and asked her to stop using that language around her children, the report says.

However, Wolf told local ABC affiliate WJBF that wasn’t the case.

“She said, ‘You said they smashed the bread,’ and I said ‘no,’ I said that to my husband that he smashed the bread by throwing the frozen pizzas on it,” Wolf told the outlet.

The woman identified in the report as “Ms. Smith,” police called.

Wolf was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

“He said, ‘You’re under arrest’ … right in front of kids, in front of my husband, in front of customers,” Wolf told WJBF, speaking about the officer who addressed the family.

“I didn’t hurt anyone. I haven’t hurt anyone.

“The lady said she was having a bad day. So, because you’re having a bad day, you’re going to ruin someone’s life.”

Smith later apologized to Wolf over the phone, HuffPost reported.

A law in North Augusta stated that disorderly conduct meant “to utter, in a state of anger, in the presence of another, any crude, lewd, or obscene word or epithet”.

North Augusta, South Carolina is just across the Georgia state line and 110 miles south of Greenville.

The US Sun has contacted the North Augusta Department of Public Safety for more information about Wolf’s pleading and the outcome of the case.
