Paul Simon and Edie Brickell suffered ‘minor injuries’ during family dispute
The pair appeared in court yesterday to face charges of disorderly conduct
Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell suffered “minor injuries” after a dispute on Saturday night.
Police were alerted to the incident and arrested the couple for alleged “disorderly” conduct.
They appeared at Norwalk Superior Court in their hometown New Canaan, Connecticut, yesterday.
They held hands throughout their appearance and told the judge they saw no need for a protective order and did not feel threatened by each other, according to the AP.
They are next due in court on 13 May.
“I got my feelings hurt and picked a fight with my husband. The police called it disorderly. Thank God it’s orderly now,” said Brickell in the statement released by her lawyer, Allen Cramer.
New Canaan police chief Leon Krolikowski said Simon and Brickell suffered “minor injuries” and that there was “aggressiveness on both sides”.
Local police were contacted via a 911 call on Saturday evening at 8pm to investigate a “family dispute”.
One party agreed to leave voluntarily and go to another location,” the chief said.
“They're both victims and they have children involved, and we're trying to be very cautious of that. It concerns us. It’s good if people are calling us and asking us for help. We do want people to call us and ask us for help."
The couple have been married for 20 years and have three children, Adrian, Lulu and Gabriel.
