Paul Simon, Edie Brickell arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct

Husband-wife singer-songwriters Paul Simon and Edie Brickell were arrested on Saturday at their home in Connecticut on disorderly conduct charges, according to police in New Canaan, Conn., who have scheduled a news conference Monday morning to discuss the incident.

Press reports say that Simon, 72, and Brickell, 48, who have been married since 1992, are due for arraignment this afternoon.

No other details were immediately available.

Simon has been on tour recently with Sting, and Brickell’s latest project to surface was a collaboration with actor-musician Steve Martin, for which the pair won the American roots song Grammy Award for the title track from their 2013 album, “Love Has Come for You.”
