A mother was arrested after she allegedly wrote a vulgar message on a toilet bowl and left it in someone's front yard.

Rob Wagonschutz, an agent with Maury County's drug task force, woke up to a toilet in his neighbor's front yard with a message made out to him.

The message read: "[Redacted] you, Rob Wagonschutz and there's a special place in [redacted] for you and your boys."

Patti Cole is the mother who left the toilet for Wagonschutz because she was angry her daughter, Allison, was recently arrested on meth charges.

Wagonchutz was one of the arresting officers.

"It was embarrassing and offensive, at that. In my 12 years working here, I work hard to keep the horrors we endure as police oifficers away from my family," he said after the incident.

Wagonschutz is a father to two boys, ages four and nine and said that the incident was tough for his family because his children don't know this side of society yet.

Nashville's News 2 Investigates spoke to Sheriff Enoch George to gather more information about the arrest.

"[Patti Cole] was irate about the situation of her daughter being arrest and felt like she had been done wrong," George explained.

Cole was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, which is defined as creating a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act that serves no legitimate purpose.

When asked if the arrest was a violation of freedom of speech, George said, "Some people might say this is borderline. And it is, but using the vulgar language in a neighborhood as congested as this, I think it goes over the line of being freedom of speech."

The sheriff also said that he isn't sure what the message meant when it referred to Wagonshutz's "boys", but her interpreted it as a threat.

"I took it to mean [Wagonshutz's] boys since he lives in this community," he said.

Nashville's News 2 Investigates called Patti Cole multiple times and received no calls back.

Sheriff George said that Cole, however, did express regret for her alleged actions.
