Police last week arrested a 23-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.
At about 4:08 p.m. on April 16, officers were dispatched to a Middle Ridge Road home regarding a domestic dispute between the man and another occupant of the residence, according to a police report.
Following an investigation, police charged him with the misdemeanor-level offense.
It’s not clear what the dispute was about, whether it turned physical or how the arrested man is related to the other person involved. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.
Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct when he or she, “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 Monday in state Superior Court.
Police have said that the number of calls for family disputes in 2020 (48) was roughly in line with the total from 2019 (46).
