Paul Simon, Edie Brickell Arrested For Disorderly Conduct

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

"On Saturday, April 26, 2014, at approximately 8:20 p.m., New Canaan officers responded to a location in New Canaan to investigate a Family Dispute," a police spokesperson said in a statement.

Police say they found probable cause to arrest both Simon and Brickell.

The two were later released and are set to appear at an arraignment in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday afternoon.

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.
