New Canaan Woman, 40, Charged in Domestic Incident


Police late on the night of Nov. 4 arrested a 40-year-old Oenoke Lane woman and charged her with disorderly conduct.

Police at about 10:47 p.m. that Saturday night responded to the Oenoke Lane home regarding a dispute, according to a police report.

There, authorities conducted an investigation and brought the misdemeanor charge, the report said.

Police withheld details of the most arrest, 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.

The woman was released after promising to appear Nov. 6 in state Superior Court. According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, she has not yet pleaded and is scheduled to appear again on Jan. 16.
