Paul Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, have been arrested in Connecticut on disorderly conduct charges. A police spokeswoman in New Canaan said the arrests stemmed from an incident Saturday.
A press release issued Monday morning by the New Canaan Police Dept. describes the incident as a "family dispute." Authorities responded to a location at approximately 8:20 p.m. on Saturday where they found probable cause to arrest both Simon and Brickell. They were released, and an arraignment in Norwalk Superior Court is expected Monday afternoon.
Earlier, NBC Connecticut quoted a police department staffer as saying that "some sort of a domestic violence charge" had occurred, however, that detail was not confirmed.
Simon's phone number is unlisted and his agent in Los Angeles did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Simon is a 12-time Grammy winner and a member of The Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame — as half of the duo of Simon and Garfunkel and as a solo artist.
Brickell's "What I Am," recorded with her band the New Bohemians, was a hit in 1988.
The two were married in 1992 and have three children together. They have a home in New Canaan, about 40 miles northeast of New York City.
