Simon's call led to his, wife's arrest

Associated Press

NORWALK, Conn. - Paul Simon made the 911 call that led to the arrests last week of him and his wife, singer Edie Brickell, on disorderly conduct charges, according to a police report.

The police report indicates that Brickell, 48, and Simon, 72, became physical with each other Saturday during an argument inside a cottage on their New Canaan property that houses a recording studio.

Brickell told officers she confronted her husband after he did something to "break her heart," according to police, but she did not provide any details. She told police he shoved her during the argument, and she slapped him.

The report indicates Simon called 911 and then hung up, prompting the police response.

Simon suffered a superficial cut to his ear, and Brickell, who smelled of alcohol, had a bruise on her wrist, according to the police report.

Brickell told police the two had other physical confrontations and asked an officer to feel a lump on her head.
