Police arrested a 37-year-old Pound Ridge, N.Y. man late Saturday night after he yanked a woman out of a car in New Canaan after she told him that she wanted to go home while he wanted to continue “partying,” according to a police report.

At about 11:59 p.m., police arrived at Hoyt Farms and New Norwalk Roads following a report that a woman had been thrown from a vehicle whose occupants then fled the scene, police said.

The woman, from New York state, suffered bruises and cuts to her right knee, the report said.
