New Canaan Man and Woman Charged in Domestic Dispute


Police last Friday morning arrested a Summer Street man, 38, and woman, 20, and charged each of them with disorderly conduct. 

Officers were dispatched to the area of New Norwalk and Shaker Roads at about 7:54 a.m. on April 28 on a report of a dispute, police said.

Following an investigation, each was charged with the misdemeanor offense.

It wasn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the victim cited in each arrest report was the other arrested person or someone else. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter. Both parties gave police the same Summer Street address as their residence.

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 and woman after each of them promised to appear Monday in state Superior Court.
