Paul Simon Arrested After Domestic Dispute: Report

Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell were reportedly arrested after a domestic dispute over the weekend.

The couple was arrested Saturday at their New Canaan, Conn. home, according to NBC New York.

Both the New York Daily News and The Hartford Courant report the couple were charged with domestic violence, though NBC New York reports they were charged with disorderly conduct.

No other information about the arrest has been released, and the staff at Simon's music company declined NBC New York's request for comment.

UPDATE 4:14 pm: At their arraignment Monday afternoon, Simon and Brickell held hands and assured the judge they were fine after their "atypical argument," which resulted in a "push."

"We're going to go home and watch our son play baseball," Simon told the judge. "We had an argument, which is atypical of us. Neither of us has any fear, or any reason to be threatened."

Brickell added, "He's no threat to me at all."

Judge William Wenzel declined to issue a limited protective order as long as there are "no acts, or threats of violence with respect to either party."

UPDATE 12:11 pm: From the Associated Press:

A caller from the singers' New Canaan home dialed 911 Saturday night and hung up, police chief Leon Krolikowski said at a news conference Monday. Officers who responded found minor injuries and believed it was a case of domestic violence, he said. He did not say who was injured.

Simon and Brickell, who have been married for more than two decades, were each given a misdemeanor summons and one of them agreed to leave and go to another location, Krolikowski said.

"There was aggressiveness on both sides," he said. "They're both victims and they have children involved and we're trying to be very cautious of that."

An arraignment is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
