The Potty Mouth Case

Three swear words could land Chandler woman in jail

While standing in her house, 71-year-old Miriam Ingram yelled “___ you ___! ___ you!” to her neighbors last July. It was over a long-standing dispute with her neighbor over smoking.

Ingram’s neighbors recorded her yelling and then called the police.

Bodycam footage shows a Chandler police officer talking with Ingram about what happened.

In the police report, the officer wrote: “When I told her that I had a recording of her yelling ‘___ you ___! ___ you!’ She said that she yelled that from her back door into her own backyard. I told her that she could not yell that at her neighbor from her backyard.”

Ingram is now charged with disorderly conduct.

According to Arizona law, “a person commits disorderly conduct if, with intent to disturb the peace or quiet of a neighborhood, family or person, or with knowledge of doing so, such person.”

Ingram’s attorney Marc Victor filed a motion to dismiss the charge and says this is a first amendment issue.

“It may be offensive speech but offensive speech is protected,” said Victor. “This case presents the question is it a crime to swear at another person and the answer is — not in a free society.”

Victor says there are times when certain words aren’t protected but that’s not in Ingram’s case.

I am new to AOR, having just joined a few days ago (May 2024). I am very impressed with their... customer service; kudos to Braeden Victor, Mike Wasdin, and the others who have assisted me via the Support email team. Being new to self defense, I had tons of questions about the contract, emergency form, and general questions. Some were probably not the most intelligent, but everyone treated me with respect and answered issues they have probably answered a thousand times. I sincerely hope I never have to use the firm, but if I do, I feel confident in receiving the best service.read more
