Jared Dylan Smith, an 18-year-old Louisiana man, was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace after he allegedly swore in the presence of a female senior citizen.
Smith allegedly said the word “f*ck” in front of an elderly woman, 75, in West Monroe, Louisiana.
According to Smith’s arrest report, obtained by The Ouachita Citizen, “While standing next to my 75-year-old complainant, Jared yelled the word ‘f***’ and clearly disturbed her peace.”
Smith, who denied the allegation, was booked for disturbing the peace through language and disorderly conduct. There were no other witnesses to the “crime.” Smith was booked at the Ouachita Correctional Center, where his bond was set at $200.
According to Louisiana law, disturbing the peace is defined as:
“Addressing any offensive, derisive, or annoying words to any other person who is lawfully in any street, or other public place;
Or call him by any offensive or derisive name, or make any noise or exclamation in his presence and hearing with the intent to deride, offend, or annoy him, or to prevent him from pursuing his lawful business, occupation, or duty.”
If found guilty, Smith could serve up to 90 days in prison and would be required to pay a fine of up to $100.
