New Canaan Man Arrested after Domestic Dispute


Police last week arrested a 62-year-old New Canaan man and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 11:05 p.m. on April 8, officers were dispatched to a Butler Lane home regarding a domestic dispute between the man and another person at the residence, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police brought the misdemeanor charge, the report said.

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the arrested man is related to the victim. 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.
