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.
