New Canaan Teen Charged with Disorderly Conduct


Police on Wednesday afternoon arrested a New Canaan teenager and charged him with disorderly conduct.

At about 12:44 p.m. on March 29, officers were dispatched to an Avalon Drive East home on a report of a dispute between two residents there, police said.

Following an investigation, police issued a juvenile summons to a 16-year-old male there.

Police withheld the offender’s name because of his age.

It isn’t clear whether or how he is related to the victim, what the dispute involved, whether anyone was threatened or physically injured or what prompted police to bring the charge—it’s classified as a misdemeanor under state law.

A person is guilty of disorderly conduct in Connecticut “when, with intent to cause inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, such person: (1) Engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior; or (2) by offensive or disorderly conduct, annoys or interferes with another person; or (3) makes unreasonable noise; or (4) without lawful authority, disturbs any lawful assembly or meeting of persons; or (5) obstructs vehicular or pedestrian traffic; or (6) congregates with other persons in a public place and refuses to comply with a reasonable official request or order to disperse; or (7) commits simple trespass, as provided in section 53a-110a, and observes, in other than a casual or cursory manner, another person (A) without the knowledge or consent of such other person, (B) while such other person is inside a dwelling, as defined in section 53a-100, and not in plain view, and (C) under circumstances where such other person has a reasonable expectation of privacy.”

Police withheld details of the incident, saying it was a family matter.
