Two Arrested in Traffic Dispute 


Police on Saturday morning arrested two motorists following a traffic dispute. 

At about 9:13 a.m. on Sept. 12, officers were dispatched to the area of Saxe Middle School following a complaint about a dispute where one motorist (a 56-year-old New Canaan woman) claimed the other (a 65-year-old Norwalk man) was driving too fast, according to a police report.

The pair engaged in a verbal dispute and, following an investigation, each was charged with disorderly conduct.

Under state law, a person is guilty of disorderly conduct if he or she “engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior,” or “obstructs vehicular or pedestrian traffic,” among other reasons. 

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the dispute turned physical.

Both were released after promising to appear Oct. 13 in state Superior Court.
