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.
A New Canaan police spokeswoman provided no other details, except to say the arrests stemmed from an incident Saturday. An arraignment in Norwalk Superior Court is expected 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.
The two were married in 1992.
