Paul Simon, wife Edie Brickell arrested
Who would have expected this from the couple known for peace, love and harmony?
Paul Simon, 72, and his wife, Edie Brickell, 47, were arrested on disorderly conduct charges after a family dispute, yet the couple held hands in court Monday.
Still Crazy After All These Years.
Simon told a Norwalk Superior Court judge that he had a rare argument with his wife Saturday at home in New Canaan, Conn. Simon and Brickell each said they did not feel threatened by the other and they saw no need for a protective order. The judge asked the singers to return to court on May 16.
A caller from their home dialed 911 Saturday night and hung up, police chief Leon Krolikowski said. Responding officers found minor injuries and believed it was a case of domestic violence.
Simon and Brickell, who were married in 1992, were each given a misdemeanor summons and one of them agreed to leave, Krolikowski said. The singers have three children together.
