The husband-and-wife singer-songwriters Paul Simon and Edie Brickell were arrested over the weekend in Connecticut and charged with disorderly conduct, the authorities said on Monday. Mr. Simon and Ms. Brickell own a house in New Canaan, Conn., where, the police said in a news release, they investigated a “family dispute” on Saturday night at approximately 8:20 p.m.
The police said that investigating officers “gathered information and found probable cause to arrest” Mr. Simon and Ms. Brickell.
They were released on a promise to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday.
Mr. Simon is the Grammy Award-winning artist whose songs include “The Sound of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Kodachrome.” Ms. Brickell, also a Grammy winner, has performed as a solo artist, with the band New Bohemians and with Steve Martin. Mr. Simon and Ms. Brickell were married in 1992 and have three children.
Mr. Simon’s lawyer and a representative for Ms. Brickell did not immediately respond on Monday to requests for comment.
