Police late Monday arrested a 37-year-old New Canaan woman following a domestic dispute in her home.

At about 10:30 p.m, officers responded to a Smith Ridge Road residence for a dispute involving the woman and another occupant, according to a police report.

Following an investigation, police charged her with disorderly conduct and interfering. She refused to be handcuffed and would not comply with instructions to get into the prisoner compartment of the patrol vehicle for transport to police headquarters, the report said.

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, how the victim is related to the arrested woman or whether the dispute turned physical. Police withheld details, saying it was a domestic matter. Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, “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.”

Bond was set at $1,000 and the woman was scheduled to appear Tuesday in state Superior Court.
