Paul Simon and wife, singer Edie Brickell, appear in court for disorderly conduct case
Paul Simon and his wife, singer Edie Brickell, have appeared briefly in court for their disorderly conduct case.
The couple's next hearing is June 17 in Norwalk Superior Court, Connecticut.
A police report says 48-year-old Brickell and 72-year-old Simon became physical with each other during an April 26 argument inside a cottage on their property in New Canaan.
Brickell told police he shoved her during the argument, and she slapped him. The report says Simon suffered a superficial cut to his ear, and Brickell, who smelled of alcohol, had a bruise on her wrist.
Both said in court on April 28 that they did not consider the other a threat, and no protective order was issued.
