A 29-year-old Darien man was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct after he threw a wine glass against a wall, talked threateningly to two other individuals, ripped his own jacket and left the home, police said.
Police gave this account of what happened, including accusations not proven in court:
The man, a resident of Nearwater Lane, got into an altercation with two other people sometime before 10:43 p.m. on Saturday night, March 28, when police were called.
The man later told police that he had been in an altercation with two other people. The other two told police they had been in a verbal argument with the man, who threatened to strike them, threw the glass and ripped his jacket.
They said he never had any physical contact with either of them.
The man left the house and went to a neighbor, asking to use the telephone. The neighbor, seeing the man’s ripped jacket, called police, who spoke to the man, then went to the house and spoke to the other two people.
The man was released on a promise to appear Monday, March 30 (today) in state Superior Court in Stamford.
