North Augusta, SC -
***UPDATED at 9:45 A.M. on Friday, August 15th***
WJBF News Channel 6 has learned that the North Augusta woman who was arrested after allegedly saying the F-word in front of her kids in the Kroger store in North Augusta has received an apology from the woman who complained, which led to her arrest.
"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.
Though the North Augusta Department of Public Safety provided WJBF News Channel 6 with a copy of the law, investigating officers wouldn't comment on the case.
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.
