Moment Texas judge is confronted at store by woman who calls him a ‘traitor’ due to mask mandates

A Texas woman angry about COVID-19 mask mandates has filmed herself verbally harassing a county judge at a grocery store, calling him a supporter of the devil and a traitor who should be hanged. 

Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, 80, was the victim of the verbal abuse while he was grocery shopping at an H-E-B grocery store in San Antonio on Sunday.

Wolff’s position as a county judge is an executive role, and he is the ceremonial head of the county government. Bexar County includes the city of San Antonio.

In August, Wolff and San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg defied Texas Governor Gregg Abbott’s order prohibiting mask mandates, and ordered masks to be worn in all local and county facilities.

Wolff has also pushed for mask mandates to be implemented in schools — much to the disapproval of those who oppose wearing face coverings.  

In the video, which was posted on Instagram under the handle ashleyrockshair, the confrontation started when the woman follows Wolff towards the store’s exit. 

The woman asked Wolff, 'how much did the CDC people pay you,' before going on to call him a 'communist', 'traitor', and a 'devil worshipper.'

‘How much did the CDC people pay you,’ the woman said before going on to call Wolf a ‘communist’, ‘traitor’, and a ‘devil worshipper.’  

As she trails behind Wolff, a masked H-E-B employee comes up to speak with her.

‘You’re a traitor, too,’ she tells him, before turning her attention back to the judge.

She continues to pursue Wolff through the parking lot, yelling at him the whole time.

‘How are you going to support the devil and not God? Straight communism,’ she yelled.

Unmoved by the woman’s remarks, Wolff goes about loading his groceries as the accusations continue.

‘You’re going to go to jail, they’re going to hang you. Treason, crimes against humanity, Nuremberg trial. You’re going down,’ the woman said. 

‘You better enjoy your freedom while it lasts, buddy, and you got to answer to God.’

At that, she walked away, ending a tirade that lasted roughly 3 minutes and 30 seconds.  

The video was later posted on Instagram by the woman herself, a hair stylist who goes by the name Ashley Rocks on the platform, describing herself as a ‘patriot to the core’ in her bio.

‘Don’t let these communist traitors walk the streets,’ she writes in the video’s caption.

‘Know who stands for freedom, this man does not. He does not care about you, your family or your business. Stand up, your life depends on it!’ 

This is the second public incident Wolff has been involved in over face wearing.

In June last year, Wolff was in a checkout line at a Lowe’s home improvement store when a cashier told a customer that wearing a mask was required.

That customer got upset, so Wolff decided to intervene.

The judge tried to hand the customer a business card, and the man smacked the business card out of Wolff’s hand.

The man involved was arrested, and he was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Wolff shared a statement with McClatchy News regarding the second-time incident, urging the public to continue wearing masks and follow other measures designed to stop the spread of the virus.

‘I realize, after a year and a half, we all are experiencing COVID fatigue from wearing masks and other public health guidelines. Now is not the time to stop and let our guard down,’ the statement said. 

‘Our numbers are coming down slowly. Let’s keep this downward trend going. Mask up, keep social distance, and sanitize.’

Wolff has not responded to Dailymail.com’s request to comment any further.
