New Canaan Woman, 40, Arrested Twice Following Domestic Incident


Police arrested a 40-year-old New Canaan woman twice within a 24-hour period this past weekend following a domestic incident.

At about 11:20 a.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to a Frogtown Road home on a reported dispute between the woman and another person there, officials said.

Following an investigation, she was charged with disorderly conduct, according to a police report. She was released at the scene on a promise to appear Monday in state Superior Court. Police released no details, saying it was a domestic matter.

Then at 10:47 p.m., police conducted an investigation into possible violations of conditions of release for the same woman, according to a separate report.

Police found probable cause to charge the woman with second-degree violation of conditions of release, and arrested her at 12:21 a.m. Sunday. Under state law, the offense involves “imposing any restraint upon the person or liberty of a person in violation of the conditions of release,” or “threatening, harassing, assaulting, molesting, sexually assaulting or attacking a person,” among other reasons.

She was released on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Monday in state Superior Court on that charge.
