Man, 54, Charged After Domestic Dispute


Police before dawn Thursday arrested a 54-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 12:14 a.m. on May 7, officers were dispatched to a Jonathan Road home on a report of a domestic dispute between the man and another occupant of the residence, police said.

Following an investigation, he was brought up on the misdemeanor charge.

It isn’t clear what the argument 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.

Police released the man after he promised to appear in state Superior Court in Norwalk.
