Paul Simon Arrested for Disorderly Conduct After ‘Family Dispute’

New Canaan Police confirm that Paul Simon has been arrested for disorderly conduct after officers were called to the scene of an alleged “family dispute.”

The arrest apparently stems from a weekend incident at the Connecticut home of Simon and his wife, 48-year-old singer-songwriter Edie Brickell. NBC Connecticut reports that police originally told them Simon was arrested on “some sort of a domestic violence charge,” but now say the singer was charged with disorderly conduct, as was Brickell.

Police were called at about 8 p.m. on Saturday night, both other details were not immediately released. Representatives from both camps weren’t commenting, either. An arraignment was expected today in Norwalk Superior Court.

Update: According to Consequence of Sound, police at a press conference described the incident as a “very common domestic dispute,” at which they were “obligated to make an arrest.” There were reportedly minor injuries involved — to whom it was not specified — but nothing that required medical attention.

The 12-time Grammy-winning 72-year-old Simon has three children with Brickell, best known for her 1988 hit ‘What I Am’ with the New Bohemians. They have been married since 1992.
