New Canaan Man, 45, Arrested Following Domestic Dispute


Police on Sunday afternoon arrested a 45-year-old New Canaan man following a domestic dispute at his home.

At about 12:18 p.m., officers were dispatched to the New Norwalk Road home regarding a dispute involving the man, a 67-year-old woman with the same last name and another occupant of the residence, according to a police report.

There, following an investigation, police charged the man with disorderly conduct, the report said. The older woman, a resident of Pea Ridge, Ariz., also was charged with the misdemeanor offense, it saId.

They were charged at police headquarters at about 3:40 p.m., the report said.

The same man had been charged with breach of peace and reckless driving in February 2020 by Darien Police, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records. He pleaded not guilty in that case, which is still active, the records show.

It’s unclear how the two arrested people are related, what the dispute was about, whether it turned physical or whether the arrested people are 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.

The man and woman each were released after promising to appear Tuesday in state Superior Court.
