New Canaan Man, 19, Arrested in Domestic Dispute


Police on Tuesday afternoon arrested a 19-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 2 p.m. on Feb. 5, officers were dispatched to a Weeburn Drive home on a report of a domestic violence incident involving two occupants of the residence, police said.

Following an investigation, police charged the teen with the misdemeanor offense.

It isn’t clear what the argument involved, whether or how the victim is related to the arrested man, whether it turned physical or how badly the victim was hurt—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 held the teen on $5,000 bond and scheduled him to appear in state Superior Court.
