New Canaan Man, 51, Charged with Disorderly Conduct

Police on Friday night arrested a 51-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 8:52 p.m. on March 17, officers were dispatched to a Weed Street home on a report of a dispute between two occupants of the residence, police said.

Following an investigation, they arrested the 51-year-old man.

It isn’t clear what prompted the misdemeanor charge, what the argument involved, how it escalated or whether or how the arrested man is related to the victim.

Police withheld further information, classifying the matter as a domestic incident.
