DARIEN, Conn. -- A Darien teen was charged with getting into an altercation with someone over whether he could use her car to be an Uber driver, according to police.

Police were called to a Juniper Road home on Wednesday, Aug. 30 on a report of an altercation between residents. Police learned that two residents had gotten into an argument over whether or not one of them, a 19-year-old male, could be an Uber driver, police said.

The complainant told police that the 19-year-old male wanted to use one of her vehicles to be an Uber driver, but she forbid him to do so, police said. She said that at one point during the argument, he pushed her in an attempt to get the keys to her vehicle, according to police. She said that he destroyed her key fob, police said.

She told police that when she confronted him, he picked up a golf club and held it in a menacing manner, according to police. She also reported that when she told him that she was going to call the police, he shoved her a second time, police said.

The teen was issued a misdemeanor summons charging him with disorderly conduct. He was due in court the next day.
