A New Canaan man is facing multiple charges after police responded to a domestic disturbance on Urban Street on Jan. 2 at 10:15 p.m.
Police arrested Andrew Knopf, 44, of Urban Street, on charges of disorderly conduct, second-degree criminal mischief, endangering a minor, refusal to be fingerprinted and refusal to obey a police officer.
According to the report, when police arrived at the residence they said Knopf appeared to be intoxicated and was confrontational with police.
He was charged and taken to the New Canaan Police station. While there, he refused to be fingerprinted and was uncooperative, police said, adding that Knopf was repeatedly yelling and using profanity. Police locked him in one of the holding cells in the basement where they said Knopf continued to threaten them.
Police then said Knopf urinated on the floor of his cell. He also attempted to flood the cell twice, first by plugging the toilet with toilet paper, next by plugging it with his own underwear, according to police.

He was held on $25,000 bond and appeared in court the next day.
