Man, 31, Charged with Criminal Violation of a Protective Order


Police last week arrested a 31-year-old Trumbull man and charged him with violation of a criminal protective order.

At about 8:33 p.m. on Nov. 18, officers were dispatched to a Millport Avenue residence regarding a domestic dispute between the man and another person at the home, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police took the man into custody on charges of disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, as well as the felony offense for violating a standing protective order during the incident, the report said. 

He was taken to police headquarters and held on $50,000 bond. 

It isn’t clear what gave rise to the protective order, whether or how the man is related to the victim or how he violated its terms. Police withheld details, saying it was a domestic matter.

According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, the man had been arrested in 2016 by Danbury police and charged with second-degree criminal trespass. He pleaded guilty to that misdemeanor offense, the records show.

New Canaan Police had arrested the man in August and charged him with second-degree threatening. That matter is pending. 

He was not released in the most recent case, though bond appears to have been reduced to $2,500, Connecticut Judicial Branch records show.
