Police on Wednesday night arrested two men involved in a domestic dispute at a Silvermine Road home.
The men, a 38-year-old from Stamford and a 67-year-old who lives at the home, each were charged with disorderly conduct.
Officers were dispatched to the residence at about 5:24 p.m. on Sept. 8 on a report of the dispute, police said. There, they conducted an investigation and at 7:55 p.m. charged each man with the misdemeanor offense, according to a police report.
It’s unclear what the dispute involved, whether it turned physical or whether the men are related. 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 men after they promised to appear Thursday in state Superior Court.
