Disorderly Charge for New Canaan Man, 59


Police on Sunday arrested a 59-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 6:28 p.m. on Dec. 5, officers were distanced to a Gravestone Circle home on a report of a domestic dispute between the man and another person there, police said.

Following an investigation, the man was charged with the misdemeanor offense, according to a police report.

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the arrested man is related to the victim. Police withheld details, saying it’s 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.

Police released the man after he promised to appear Monday in state Superior Court.
