Monroe Police Reports: ‘I’m going to hit some balls’

MONROE, CT — A 65-year-old Monroe woman allegedly went after her husband with a golf club during an argument at their Cutlers Farm Road home Monday, and hit his car hood several times after he got inside it and shut the door. Then she allegedly kicked an EMT inside an ambulance and bit a police officer.

She was charged with disorderly conduct, interfering with a police officer, two counts of assault on a public safety officer and criminal attempt at second-degree assault on an elderly person, before being released on $7,500 bond for a Dec. 5 court date.

At approximately 8:50 a.m., officers responding to a domestic dispute entered the garage and saw the woman holding a golf club inside, according to the report.

Police ordered her to put it down and asked why she had the golf club in her hand, the report said. The woman reportedly told officers, “I’m going to hit some balls.”

Officers took control of her arms, placed them behind her back and handcuffed her, police said, adding she laid on the ground and wouldn’t cooperate.

She told officers she was having a medical emergency, so Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Services personnel were called to the scene. She was evaluated and taken to a hospital.

In the process of being taken to the hospital, police said she allegedly was combative in the ambulance, kicking an EMT and biting a police officer. Neither was injured.

After the hospital she was taken to the Monroe Police Department and processed on the charges.

The husband reportedly told police his wife grabbed the golf club and started swinging at him when he attempted to leave their home during a verbal argument.

DUI on Hiram Hill Road

A 35-year-old Trumbull woman was charged with DUI after allegedly passing out at the wheel of her 2024 Subaru Outback, while stopped in the middle of Hiram Hill Road, near Stanley Road, late Monday night.

Police said officers responding to the call, which came in around 11:40 p.m., arrived to find the Outback’s engine running, the car in gear and the driver’s foot on the brake.

Officers knocked on the window to wake the woman up. Then she began to drive away at a slow rate of speed, police said.

After traveling approximately 150 feet, she stopped and rolled down the window, police said, adding officers could smell the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from the vehicle.

The driver did not perform field sobriety tests to standard, leading to her arrest, police said.

She was charged with DUI and released after posting 10 percent of her $500 bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 19.

Stolen firewood

After allegedly being caught on video stealing firewood from Stop & Shop on two separate occasions, a 67-year-old Monroe man turned himself in on a warrant Tuesday.

He was charged with sixth-degree larceny and released after posting 10 percent of his $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 13.

On Oct. 27, store surveillance cameras at Stop & Shop, 470 Monroe Turnpike, recorded a man putting over $67 worth of firewood into a shopping cart and unloading it into his van. Then on Oct. 29 cameras recorded the same man stealing close to $75 worth of firewood.

When the man went shopping at Oct. 30, police said the store manager recognized him and took down the license plate number on his van as he was leaving.

This allowed police to identity a suspect and apply for the warrant.

Beware of porch pirates

A thief stole packages containing two Apple iPhone 15 Pros from the porch of a North Hillside Lane residence Tuesday evening.

Police said the homeowner’s doorbell camera recorded video of the packages being delivered at 2:26 p.m., before a balding Black man with a beard wearing a black jacket with a hood and blue jeans is seen taking the packages at 3:04 p.m.

The phones were valued at $1,000 each.

This is the time of year when package theft rises, according to police.

The Monroe Police Department reminds residents to schedule their package deliveries when someone will be home whenever possible, or to have deliveries made to a place where they will be, so someone can accept the packages.

  1. With regard to the story on porch pirates, I fail to understand why delivery people are not instructed to ring the doorbell when they leave packages by the front door. If the homeowner is not home, that’s one thing, but if they are, there’s at least a chance that porch pirates will not have an opportunity to snag the packages first.
