New Canaan Woman, 37, Charged in Domestic Incident 


Police on Monday arrested a 37-year-old West Road woman by warrant and charged her with disorderly conduct.

At about 1:29 p.m. on June 19, officers took a complaint at police headquarters regarding a domestic dispute between the woman and the victim, official said.

Following an investigation, local authorities obtained a warrant to arrest the woman on the misdemeanor charge, according to a police report.

She turned herself in at about 2:24 on July 18, the report said.

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the arrested woman 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 woman after she promised to appear Tuesday in state Superior Court.
