New Canaan Woman, 40, Charged in Domestic Incident


Police last week arrested a 40-year-old New Canaan woman and charged her with disorderly conduct. 

At about 4:57 p.m. on April 27, officers were dispatched to a Jelliff Mill Road home on a report of a dispute between the woman and the victim, police said.

There, officers arrested the woman and took her into custody on the misdemeanor charge, according to a police report.

It wasn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the victim is related to the arrested woman. Police withheld details, saying it’s a domestic matter.

The woman has been arrested multiple times, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records. In addition to motor-vehicle related arrests in 2014 (Westport Police) and 2105 (Norwalk), to which she pleaded guilty, the woman was charged in 2017 with evading responsibility (Norwalk, pleaded guilty), drug-related charges (Norwalk, 2017, pleaded guilty) and third-degree assault (New Canaan, 2018, pleaded guilty).

She was released on $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear the following day (April 28) in state Superior Court. She has not yet pleaded, court records show, and now is scheduled to appear July 10.
