Police last week arrested a 32-year-old Michigan Road man and charged him with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. At about 6:31 p.m. on April 20, officers were dispatched to the lobby of police headquarters on a report of a family dispute earlier in the day, authorities said. Following an investigation, police brought the misdemeanor charges.
It isn’t clear what the dispute involved or where it occurred, how it turned physical, whether or how the man is related to the victim or what was the extent of the victim’s injuries. Police declined to provide details, saying the incident was a domestic matter. Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, with intent to cause inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior; or by offensive or disorderly conduct, annoys or interferes with another person, among other reasons.
