Thomas Purcell of Lakeview Road faces charges in the aftermath of a domestic dispute early Thursday
Police said the 55-year-old Purcell was charged after a call to 911 from his home was interrupted during a loud argument that was heard in the background.
Officers dispatched to the scene learned that an argument between Purcell and his wife had turned physical, and when Purcell's son tried to call 911, he grabbed the phone and hung up, according to the report.
Purcell was charged with disorderly conduct and interfering with an emergency call. He was held on $2,500 bond and appeared the later that day in Norwalk Superior Court.
