NEW CANAAN, Conn. — The owner of New Canaan’s Tuscan Restaurant, which closed earlier this year, has been charged with failure to appear after missing a court appearance in May.
Marc Minella, 35, of Darien, who was arrested in March by New Canaan Police on a felony charge of issuing a bad check, had been picked up by Darien Police and held for New Canaan on July 10, Sgt. Carol Ogrinc said. She was unsure of why he was in custody with Darien Police.

He was released after posting a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court in Milford on those charges on July 23, the website said.
