A New Canaan woman turned herself into police on June 22 after an incident on June 20 resulted in an assault between the woman and her in-laws, said Sgt. Ogrinc.
While celebrating her child’s high school graduation, Marea Dumbauld, who is in the midst of a divorce from her husband, allegedly got into an altercation with her mother-in-law and father-in-law at Thali Restaurant, said Sgt. Ogrinc.
An argument allegedly began between Dumbauld’s daughter, 19, and Dumbauld’s father-in-law, which eventually involved Dumbauld herself and her mother-in-law, escalated and became quite loud, said Sgt. Ogrinc.
Allegedly, Dumbauld’s father-in-law had a phone in his hand that Dumbauld’s daughter thought was hers. The 19-year-old grabbed the phone from her grandfather and Dumbauld took the phone and threw it at her father-in-law’s chest, said Sgt. Ogrinc.
Dumbauld’s soon-to-be ex-husband arrived at the restaurant in the midst of the argument and subsequently went to the police department with his parents to report the incident, police said.
Dumbauld was charged with third-degree assault of an elderly person and second-degree breach of peace, police said. She appeared in court on Monday, June 25.
Dumbauld’s mother-in-law, Sue Dumbauld, 78, of Ohio was issued an infraction for creating a public disturbance as she was allegedly quite loud during the argument, said Sgt. Ogrinc.
