Disorderly Charge for New Canaan Man, 48


Police last week arrested a 48-year-old Millport Avenue man and charged him with disorderly conduct. 

At about 3:31 p.m. on Sept. 9, the victim came to New Canaan Police to report a dispute they’d had with the man, officials said.

Through an investigation, police established probable cause and charged him with the misdemeanor offense. 

It’s unclear what happened or where, whether the arrested man is related to the victim or whether the dispute turned physical. Police declined to provide details, calling it a domestic matter.

Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct when he or she, “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.

The man was held on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Sept. 11 in state Superior Court.
