New Canaan Women Arrested in Domestic Incident


Police on Sunday arrested two New Canaan women and charged them with disorderly conduct.

At about 2:59 p.m. on Nov. 27, officers responded to a Summer Street home regarding a dispute between the women, 18 and 34.

Following an investigation, each was charged with the misdemeanor offense.

It isn’t clear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the arrested people are related (they have the same surname). 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 women after they promised to appear Monday in state Superior Court.
