A Kings Highway East couple both face charges after an argument Saturday night over a cell phone, police said.
Scott A. Donaldson, 46, and Gretchen Hessel, 37, began to argue because Donaldson wanted her cell phone in order to check a Facebook page. A neighbor reportedly heard banging sounds and a woman yelling for help. When officers arrived, they said Hessel was visibly upset and there was a broken computer on the floor.
Hessel was charged with disorderly conduct and third-degree assault, while Donaldson was charged with disorderly conduct. Both were released on a promise to appear Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
