55-Year-Old Man Charged with Disorderly Conduct and Threatening

Police on Thursday afternoon arrested a 55-year-old New Canaan man on charges of disorderly conduct and second-degree threatening. At about 3:10 p.m. on July 18, police responded to a complaint of a domestic dispute between the man and the other occupant of an Old Stamford Road home, according to a police report. Police determined that the man was in violation of the charges and transported him to headquarters. 

It isn’t clear how the dispute started, or what threats were made or how. The police report withheld all further information, as the matter was domestic in nature. 

Under state law, a person is guilty of second-degree threatening when “by physical threat, such person intentionally places or attempts to place another person in fear of imminent serious physical injury,” or “threatens to commit any crime of violence with the intent to terrorize another person.”

The man was released on bail of $5,000 for the threatening charge and police scheduled him to appear in Superior Court in Norwalk the following day. 

His next appearance in Norwalk is set for Aug. 14, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records.
