Police on Wednesday night arrested a 54-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 8:05 p.m. on Sept. 23, officers were dispatched to a Weed Street home on a report of a physical altercation between the man and a victim.

Following an investigation, he was charged with the misdemeanor offense.

It isn’t clear what started the physical altercation, whether or how the victim is related to the arrested man or the extent of the victim’s injuries.

Police withheld details, saying it 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.

The man was released after promising to appear Thursday in state Superior Court.
