Some Thanksgivings are more eventful than usual, as shown in these two police reports, including accusations not proven in court:

Shortly before 2:38 a.m. at a home on Harriet Lane, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring until a resident heard banging on the outside door and ringing of the doorbell. When the resident opened the door, what did he see but a man who ran past the resident and into his home. Asked who he was, the intruder replied, “Nick.” When told to leave, he did. The resident then called police.

A 25-year-old woman, barefoot, emerged from the woods at the north end of town at about 1:40 a.m., Thursday by police who had been given a report of an apparently intoxicated woman running on the side of the road, Darien police said. Police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:

The woman, a Norwalk resident, had been with friends at a restaurant (police neither named it nor indicated whether it was in Darien). When the group was leaving, the woman refused to go with them, but they were concerned about how intoxicated she was, so they physically escorted her outside. While she was being driven in Darien, the woman punched and scratched someone else in the vehicle. She tried to get out of the vehicle several times while it was moving and had to be restrained by others each time.
