A dispute between a man and woman about a ride to the airport Sunday afternoon led police to file disorderly conduct charges against the couple.
Police received a call around 1:22 p.m. from Eileen Friend, 46, of Villa Avenue, claiming she was being assaulted by her boyfriend, Michael Kusick, 56, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. When police arrived, they saw a man walking to a car, carrying a suitcase. It was Kusick, they said, and he told officers that he and Friend had gotten into an argument because he needed to get to the airport and Friend refused to drive him. Friend, he said, locked him out of the apartment.
Both were released on a promise to have appeared Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
