Disorderly, Interfering with Emergency Call Charges for New Canaan Man, 28


Police last week arrested a 28-year-old West Road man and charged him with disorderly conduct and interfering with an emergency call.

At about 8:50 a.m. on April 12, officers were dispatched to the man’s home on a report of a dispute, police said.

There, officers established probable cause to bring the two misdemeanor charges. The man was transported to police headquarters for processing and remained in custody through the weekend for an arraignment Monday, police said.

Police withheld details of the arrest, 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.

More information regarding the arrest can be found on the NCPD website.
