Police: Son, 23, Arrested After Striking Father

A 23-year-old Darien man was charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct after striking his father in an argument at home.

During an argument at their home on May 17, a 23-year-old man struck his father twice, causing a cut near his right eye and resulting in the son's arrest, Darien police said.

In a news release, Capt. Frederick W. Komm, a spokesman for the Police Department, gave this account of the incident and arrest:

The argument occurred May 17 at the family's home on Long Neck Point Road when the father tried to talk with his son about a health issue. At about 7:30 p.m., police were called.

The father's injury didn't need medical attention, but the son was taken by Darien EMS-Post 53 to Stamford Hospital "due to health concerns," according to the news release.

Police applied for and received a warrant for the son's arrest on charges of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. The son was arrested on Friday and remained in police custody over the weekend in lieu of posting $1,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear Tuesday in state Superior Court in Stamford.

The son needs a shrink and maybe a doctor. Let it go at that! The father didn't need any medical attention. Not NEWS - this is more family squabbles and gossip. I saw two little 7 yr old girls giggling at a cocktail party over the weekend as they each "stole" a sip from their parents gin and tonics! Should they be arrested for underage drinking?? What about theft?? And then don't forget negligent parenting. Oh the drama and the field day that Patch would have with this. Call in the secret service, the fbi and child welfare. So much to do about nothing on these pages!

I agree with Ethical Vegan. The story was newsworthy. Sushi, one of the great things America offers is freedom of choice. If you don't like the content of Patch, then you can choose not to read it anymore. You are not the editor or the owner, so you don't get to dictate the content.
