FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield man was arrested early Sunday after he got in a fight with a woman, waving a knife at her, police said.

Michael Carafotes, 31, of Beechwood Lane, was charged with second-degree assault, second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct in the 2:45 a.m. incident.

Carafotes and the woman were drinking at a bar, and he began berating her and calling her names as they drove to a home, police said.

Once at the home, he said she cut his arm as he was lying asleep on the kitchen floor, police said. The woman told officers she went upstairs for a while to diffuse the situation.

When she returned downstairs, Carafotes grabbed her by the back of the neck, brandished a serrated knife and smashed a cordless phone and a can of seltzer, police said.

The woman had minor cuts on her hands, police said.

The broken phone was found hidden in a sneaker.

Carafotes posted $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 27.
