A Darien woman, 48, slapped another family member, who then took a phone and started to leave when she followed the person and knocked the phone out of the person’s hand, police said.
Darien police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:
The victim told police that he or she had been slapped by the woman. When police arrived at the home, the victim said the woman had confronted the victim about concerns about their relationship, and the two argued.
After the woman knocked the phone out of the victim’s hand, the victim retrieved it and called police.
The woman told police there was an argument, but she denied that it ever became physical. She said she did take the person’s phone, but she didn’t knock it out of the person’s hand, she said.
Police gave her a misdemeanor summons charging her with disorderly conduct. She was directed to appear Oct. 1 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
