A University of Connecticut employee was arrested Monday and charged with disorderly conduct.

Gary Kirsch, a member of the professional staff in UConn’s Community School of the Arts, turned himself in to police Monday after a warrant was issued for his arrest by Rockville Superior Court. According to the arrest report, the warrant stems from a Jan. 21 incident of alleged disorderly conduct involving another UConn employee.

The report states Kirsch will be transferred to Rockville Superior Court today for presentment. His bond was set at $2,500.

Kirsch’s office is located on UConn’s Depot Campus in Tolland. The Community School of the Arts, where Kirsch was employed, provides musical and visual arts instruction to students of all ages throughout Eastern Connecticut — according to the department’s website.

Kirsch made an annual salary of $50,500 as a public employee as of 2012, according to open records.
