Police late Sunday arrested a New Canaan man and woman, 44 and 46 years old, respectively, and charged each of them with disorderly conduct.
At about 11:51 p.m. on Sept. 12, officers were dispatched to a Kimberly Place home regarding a domestic dispute between two people there, according to a police report.
Following an investigation, police issued each with the misdemeanor charge, the report said.
It’s unclear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or how the people are related to each other (they have the same last name). 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 each of them after they promised to appear the following day in state Superior Court.
