Paul Simon, Edie Brickell arrested in Connecticut

NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Police in Connecticut say Paul Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges.

New Canaan police provided no details Monday, except to say officers responded to investigate a "family dispute" involving the singers Saturday night.

The 72-year-old Simon and 47-year-old Brickell were released and an arraignment is scheduled for Monday in Norwalk.

A phone number for Simon is unlisted and his agent in Los Angeles did not immediately return a call seeking comment. An agent for Brickell did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Simon is a 12-time Grammy winner and member of The Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame — as half of the duo of Simon and Garfunkel and as a solo artist.

The two were married in 1992.
