Disorderly Conduct Charge for New Canaan Teen


Police on Wednesday morning arrested a 19-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 8:50 a.m. on Oct. 14, officers were dispatched to a New Norwalk Road home on a report of a dispute between the man and another occupant of the residence.

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

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

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.
