DARIEN, Conn. A Norwalk woman was accused of violating Dariens dog leash laws and being uncooperative with police.
According to police reports, the animal control officer was patrolling Cherry Lawn Park at 9 a.m. June 12 when he saw Lynne Ward, 61, with a border collie off its leash. This was during a time when dogs are supposed to be kept on their leashes.
The officer approached Ward and asked her for her license in order to write a ticket, police said. According to reports, Ward refused to provide the license, told the officer that she would not be receiving a ticket and then drove off.
The officer noted her car registration, and when police tried to contact her by telephone she hung up. Officers then went to her house, where they said she was again uncooperative.
She was issued a misdemeanor summons for interfering with an officer, failure to license her dog and violation of the town regulation concerning dogs off leash in a town park. She was ordered to appear in court June 25.
