New Canaan Man, 46, Charged in Domestic Incident


Police on Wednesday night arrested a 46-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 8:18 p.m. on May 11, 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.

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

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved or whether it turned physical. 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 Thursday in state Superior Court.
