A woman in Grapevine, Texas, said she was cited by local police officers for using profanity during an argument with another mother at a park filled with children.
Kristy Dugray told KXAS-TV that she was engaged in a private conversation with a friend at the Dove Park Sprayground -- a free water park for kids -- when she was interrupted by another woman and a heated curse-laden exchange erupted.
"I have a nice vocabulary," Dugray told the TV station. "It just came out. I told her what I thought about her ... She was telling me how awful I was and how I had a horrible heart inside and I was a terrible, ugly person inside. So I told her she was an ugly person on the outside."
She admits that young children were able to hear the verbal fracas, and that must have spurred someone to call police.
According to police Lt. Barry Bowling, officers were dispatched to the scene, talked to witnesses and later issued Dugray and a neighbor tickets for disorderly conduct -- a misdemeanor punishable by a fine.
"Certainly not in an environment where children were present, it's just not the kind of language that we felt was appropriate," Bowling told KXAS. "The cursing was what was offensive to not only the victim but the bystanders who were in the area at the time."
Dugray said she's upset that her sparring partner wasn't issued a ticket by police as well.
She said she plans fight the citation in court -- only this time without a potty mouth.
