Police after midnight Tuesday arrested a 51-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.
At about 12:12 a.m. on April 13, officers were dispatched to a New Lane house regarding a domestic dispute between the man and another occupant of the residence, according to a police report.
Following an investigation, police charged the man with the misdemeanor offense, the report said.
It wasn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or how the other individual involved in the dispute is related to the arrested man. 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).
