Man, 38, Charged in New Year’s Eve Dispute


Police on Thursday arrested a 38-year-old Norwalk man by warrant and charged him with third-degree criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. 

At about 6:39 p.m. on Dec. 31, officers were dispatched to a New Norwalk Road home regarding a dispute between the man and another person at the residence, according to a police report.

It isn’t clear what property may have been damaged in the dispute.

Following an investigation, police brought the two domestic charges.

Under state law, a person is guilty of third-degree criminal mischief if he or she “Intentionally or recklessly (A) damages tangible property of another, or (B) tampers with tangible property of another and thereby causes such property to be placed in danger of damage,” among other reasons. 

Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

The man turned himself in on the warrant at about 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 13. He was released on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Feb. 3 in state Superior Court.
