Police charged Moira McNeill, 41, with disorderly conduct and third-degree assault Monday evening after she allegedly struck her ex-husband in the back with a mop handle.

According to the report, McNeill, of 160 Fairfield Woods Road, and her ex-husband, who still live together even though they are divorced, argued when McNeill asked him for $1,000. He said when he turned his back, she hit him with the handle of a mop.

McNeill was released on a promise to appear Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
