Police on Monday night arrested a 61-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 8:48 p.m. on April 15, officers were dispatched to a Lambert Road home on a report of a domestic dispute between two occupants of the residence, police said.

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

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether or how the victim is related to the arrested man, whether it turned physical or how badly the victim was hurt—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.

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