Is getting yelled at a circumstance?

I know in the model we’re supposed to use an actual quote in the circumstance line when we’re doing a model related to something someone has said to us. How do you capture in a circumstance the way someone speaks to you? Is “he’s yelling at me” my thought? Or is “He yelled, XYZ” a legitimate circumstance? I feel like yelling could be defined in a court of law but I also understand that one person’s yelling could maybe not be considered yelling to someone else.
