Disorderly Charge for New Canaan Woman, 42

Police on Friday afternoon arrested a 42-year-old New Canaan woman following a domestic incident.

At about 2:03 p.m. on Jan. 6, officers were dispatched to a Juniper Road home on a report of a dispute between two residents there, police said.

Following an investigation, at about 3:22 p.m., the woman was charged with disorderly conduct.

It isn’t clear what prompted police to bring the misdemeanor charge, what started the argument, whether it got physical or how she’s related to the victim. Police withheld further information, classifying it as a domestic matter.

Under state law, disorderly conduct occurs when (a) A person acts with intent to cause inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, such person: (1) Engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior; or (2) by offensive or disorderly conduct, annoys or interferes with another person; or (3) makes unreasonable noise; or (4) without lawful authority, disturbs any lawful assembly or meeting of persons; or (5) obstructs vehicular or pedestrian traffic; or (6) congregates with other persons in a public place and refuses to comply with a reasonable official request or order to disperse; or (7) commits simple trespass, as provided in section 53a-110a, and observes, in other than a casual or cursory manner, another person (A) without the knowledge or consent of such other person, (B) while such other person is inside a dwelling, as defined in section 53a-100, and not in plain view, and (C) under circumstances where such other person has a reasonable expectation of privacy.

Police released the woman after promising to appear Jan. 9 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
