HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The owner of a Huntsville dance studio pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct in court Friday morning.

Ann Brown, owner of Ann's Studio of Dance on Whitesburg Drive, was arrested for the misdemeanor as a result of an April 4th altercation in a parking lot near her business.

Brown appeared in Madison County Court without an attorney. She claimed she didn't use bad language during the incident, but she said she did "go ballistic." She claimed she did it for the children because when they are at the studio, they are in her care.

Brown's arrest was a result of an on-going battle over parking spaces at her dance studio. Neighbors on the residential streets around the business claim parents and students block driveways and roads in the area.

A medical office and a clothing boutique next to Ann's studio of dance share a parking lot. On April 4th, Clinic employees claimed several cars parked in the lot were there illegally and they wanted the vehicles towed.

A tow truck driver said Brown confronted him when he attempted to tow the cars. He said Brown went "ballistic" and told him he wasn't allowed to touch the vehicles belonging to dance students. The diver said Brown was using profane language and called him several obscenities.

The medical clinic owner said she captured the incident on camera.

In court Friday, Brown told the judge that she did not use profanities.
