Just 11 days after he was arrested on domestic-dispute charges, Westport resident Thomas Carstens of 19 Soundview Drive was arrested early Sunday.
According to police reports, Carstens, 46, allegedly broke down the door of his ex-girlfriend's house to confront her and her new boyfriend. In doing so, he violated a protective order filed against him after the domestic dispute incident Oct. 27 in which Carstens allegedly ripped the phone out of his ex's hand when she went to call 911, causing minor injury.
In Sunday's incident, Carstens was charged with second-degree criminal mischief, second-degree burglary and criminal violation of a protective order. He appeared in court Monday and is scheduled to reappear Dec. 1.
