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.

A Darien High School student who posted a picture of himself last week with a gun, later determined to be a BB gun, was charged with breach of peace, Darien police said. Police said they charged the student because the picture had been circulated among students and caused some alarm and concern. DHS Principal Ellen Dunn sent an email to parents and guardians of students at the high school to inform them that the matter was being dealt with and there didn’t appear to be any threat to students. As reported last week, no threats were made in connection with the student’s online picture, and police today announced that the student didn’t intend to make any threats, and the picture initially had been sent to a small number of students. A group of students informed the high school administration about the picture, and the administration brought the matter to the school resource officer (a police officer) at about 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27.
