FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Fairfield officers stopped an 18-year-old town man after friends called to report that he had broken a car window with his elbow after a fight Sunday, police said.

Shortly before 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Grant Potter arrived on Old Academy Road, where a group of his friends were gathering to go fishing, police said. But Potter then punched one of his friends twice, police said.

A witness told police another friend tried to calm down Potter, but the argument turned physical and the two began to wrestle before it was broken up.

The group broke up, and Potter followed the friends in his own car, police said. At a stop light, he got out and broke the rear driver side window of the other car with his elbow, police said.

Officers found Potter a short time late, and he told them that a verbal argument had turned physical, police said.

Officers began to charge Potter with a misdemeanor, but he became uncooperative and refused to sign the summons, police said.

Potter was taken into custody and charged with second-degree criminal mischief and breach of peace. He was released on $250 bond with a court date of Aug. 11.
