An 18-year-old Fairfielder was charged with disorderly conduct Thursday morning following a domestic dispute with his wife.

Cory Ropiak, of 515 Black Rock Turnpike, allegedly held his wife down by the throat and tried pulling the wedding ring off her finger when an argument turned physical, police said. He was arrested around 10:30 a.m..

Police said the couple's 2-year-old daughter was in an adjoining bedroom, but that she did not witness the dispute. A neighbor did report hearing the baby crying, though, police said.

Ropiak was released on $100 bond and was scheduled to appear July 23 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
