Police: New Canaan Woman, 54, Spits On and Kicks Officers During Arrest


Police late Sunday charged a 54-year-old New Canaan woman with assault and other offenses after she spat on and kicked officers during her arrest.

At about 11:31 p.m. on June 20, officers were dispatched to the Thayer Pond Road house on a report of a domestic dispute involving Susan Doshi and another occupant of the home, police said.

There, officers conducted an investigation and, as a result, took Doshi into custody on criminal charges, according to a police report. As they took her into custody, Doshi became combative and spat on an officer, the report said.

During the booking process at police headquarters, Doshi refused to be fingerprinted, was uncooperative and kicked officers, it said.

She ultimately was charged with third-degree assault, interfering with an officer, three counts of assault of public safety, emergency medical, public transit or health care personnel—a felony offense—two counts of disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a fingerprinting request.

Doshi was held on $10,000 bond and scheduled to appear Monday in state Superior Court.
