Susan Pasqua, 51, of Mill Plain Road, was charged with disorderly conduct Monday after she allegedly got into a physical altercation with her daughter.

According to the report, Pasqua hit her daughter on the head after her daughter kicked her because she was upset that Pasqua had allegedly hit the daughter's 6-year-old son in the face. Police said Pasqua had to be handcuffed during the investigation for her own safety and that of officers.

She was released on a promise to appear Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court.
