Published 1:24 pm, Monday, September 15, 2014
A New Canaan woman was arrested early Monday morning after police said she harassed a man at a downtown bar and then became contentious when officers tried to speak to her outside her home.
Louisa Labrie, 48, of 108 Harrison Ave., New Canaan, was arrested Sept. 15 on charges of disorderly conduct and two counts of interfering with an officer.
A Hillside Avenue resident called police asking them to speak to Labrie because he was worried she tried to follow him home after they left Tequila Mockingbird, 6 Forest St., earlier that night, according to the report. The 31-year-old man said Labrie was harassing him at the bar, where they had a verbal argument, police said.

The officers went to Labrie's house, where they heard yelling coming from the second floor, according to police. They knocked on the door several times until a woman, who seemed to have been drinking, came outside and said Labrie was not home, police said. The woman, who police said was acting evasive, said Labrie did live there but that it would be better if police called her during the day, according to the report.
Police said the woman eventually admitted to being Labrie and one of the officers then asked why she hadn't been truthful. At that point, Labrie grabbed the officer's wrist and told him not to yell at her, according to police. The officers told her to let go of the wrist and she refused, police said. When officers tried to handcuff her, she tried to resist by kicking them, according to the report.
She posted $500 and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 26.
