Michael Kondrat, 62, of Four Seasons Road, was charged with breach of peace Tuesday after he shoved an employee at the Jewish Home for the Elderly, 175 Jefferson St., police said.

The nursing home called police after Kondrat began yelling at a nurse trying to move his mother's belongings to another room. The nurse said Kondrat intentionally bumped into her and then pushed her out of the way, according to the report. Kondrat has been verbally abusive to the staff in the past, police said.

He was released on a promise to appear March 19 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
