Police after midnight Sunday arrested a New Canaan husband and wife following a report that she’d been knocking on the front door of a Lambert Road home.
At about 12:33 a.m. on Sept. 22, officers arrived in the area and saw the woman getting into a vehicle on Lambert Road near the residence in question, according to a police report.
Police stopped the car and found that the 41-year-old man driving it, the husband, had alcohol on his breath, the report said. He was taken into custody on a charge of driving under the influence and refused to undergo a test to establish his blood-alcohol level, it said.
After police arrested him, the wife, 37, got out of the vehicle and began approaching the husband and officers while yelling obscenities, the report said. She didn’t obey commands to stop approaching her husband, and pushed officers away as they tried to restrain her, it said. Eventually they handcuffed her and charged her with interfering and second-degree breach of peace. While in the booking area of New Canaan Police headquarters, she refused to cooperate, kicking at officers and trying to pull away from them, the report said.
The couple lives on Brookwood Lane.
They’re scheduled to appear Oct. 4 in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
