Authorities responding to a call Tuesday night at approximately 8:30 p.m. in which a black male and white female were fighting in the middle of the 600 block of E. Main St. arrested both parties, police said Wednesday morning.
Officers spoke to the reporting party, who said the male had pushed the female down before their arrival, police said. When speaking with the suspect later identified as Kyton Green, 22, of the 800 block of E. Main St., officers reported he appeared to be sick or intoxicated, police said.
When asked if he was high, authorities said Green replied, "Yeah, i smoked earlier today."
During removal of items from Green's pockets and asking him to remove his shoes, authorities allegedly discovered an unmarked orange medicine bottle with pills marked as Alprazolam, a medicine used to treat anxiety, and a plastic baggy containing what would reportedly later test positive as heroin, police said.
The baggie allegedly fell out of Green's shoe and he initially tried to cover it with his foot, denying knowledge of how it arrived there or ownership of the item, police said.
Green was arrested and charged with assault, possession of narcotics, sale of certain illegal drugs, possession of a controlled substance and sale of a controlled substance. He was held on a $2,500 bond.
The woman, identified as Melissa Zowine, 20, of Kossuth St. in Bridgeport, was also arrested in the incident for allegedly confessing to spitting on Green, which led to him pushing her. The two were reportedly in a relationship at the time and police treated it as a domestic matter.
Zowine was charged with breach of peace-threatening and was held on a $250 bond.
Both parties were scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
Robert V. Dudley, 45, of Glenbrook Rd., was charged Tuesday morning with disorderly conduct-threatening.
Steven A. Jones, 32, of Duffy St., was charged early Tuesday morning with possession of narcotics, sale of certain illegal drugs, failure to keep narcotics in an organized container, and interfering with an officer/resisting arrest.
Fatima Rodriguez, 27, of Ludlow St., was charged Tuesday afternoon with assault and disorderly conduct-fighting with a dangerous instrument/causing serious injury.
