  • Two thirteen-year-old Wilton minors were charged with breach of peace resulting from an incident on Feb. 26 at Rolling Hills Country Club. The two minors were involved in an altercation with three other 12 year-olds on a sledding hill at Rolling Hills, where the children were playing on a snow day from school. The incident escalated to the point where one of the victims ran home and reported the altercation to his parents, who then relayed it to police. Lieutenant Don Wakeman said the altercation involved a series of serious verbal threats and some physicality. Police then had to track the two 13-year-olds through the snow and ultimately charged them each with one count of breach of peace for their roles as aggressors in the incident. The two minors have March 25 court dates.
