David Guarnieri, 51, of Quincy Street, was charged with disorderly conduct Friday after he dumped a bowl of dog food over his mother's head during an argument, police said.

According to the report, when police arrived Guarnieri was at the screen door yelling at his father and when an officer attempted to calm him down, Guarnieri tried to throw a punch at him, but missed.

He was released on a promise to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court that same day.
