A teenager, said to be intoxicated by a friend who told police he couldn’t find him, became unruly Saturday night at Dunkin Donuts, then became belligerent and, when he was arrested, used racist slurs, police said.
Darien police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:
At 10:12 p.m., Saturday, June 8, police were called by someone who said an intoxicated friend, described as tall and thin and last seen at the CVS pharmacy downtown, couldn’t be found.
While police checked the area, they received a report of an unruly person at Dunkin Donuts, across the Post Road from CVS. When police arrived, they found the unruly person, who matched the description of the missing man, arguing with a Dunkin Donuts employee.
He was soon identified as Courtney Moncure, 19, of East 35th St. in Manhattan.
An employee at Dunkin Donuts told police that loud sounds had come from the restroom, where a mirror later was found to have been damaged. Moncure then came out and the employee asked him if everything was all right. Moncure became belligerent.
At one point, Moncure grabbed a “Wet Floor” sign and threw it at a wall, causing damage. When he continued to be hostile, the employee called police.
Moncure, asked about the incident, wouldn’t answer officers’ questions. He was arrested and charged with breach of peace and third-degree criminal mischief.
When arrested, he became belligerent toward officers and used racial slurs (police didn’t specify what he said). His outbursts took place in full view of Dunkin Donuts patrons.
He was taken to Police Headquarters and later released on a written promise to appear June 18 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
