A man and wife, both 42, were charged with disorderly conduct after police responded to a report of an altercation at their home on Hoyt Street, Darien police said.
Police gave this account of the matter, including accusations not proven in court:
Officers were dispatched to the home at 8:11 p.m. and spoke to the couple. Police identified them as “Individual 1” and “Individual 2” and also gave their names (which Darienite.com is not publishing) but didn’t distinguish which name went with which individual. We’ll call then No. 1 and No. 2.
According to No. 1, who appeared to have been injured on the lip: No. 1 was preparing dinner when No. 2 came into the kitchen and started the argument.
At some point, No. 2 struck No. 1 in the mouth with a closed fist.
No. 2 said No. 1 had been arguing with a third person in the home and went into the kitchen to find out what was going on. When No. 2 entered the kitchen, No. 1 struck No. 2 several times, including once on the cheek. Police saw No. 2’s left cheek had “visible discoloration.” No. 1’s chin had a small scratch on it.
Police charged both the man and the woman with disorderly conduct and issued them summonses to appear in court. They were scheduled to appear Aug. 18 in state Superior Court in Stamford. The Connecticut Judicial Branch website has no information on the case, either as pending or as either party being convicted.
