Okay, who had Paul Simon in the 2014 Connecticut Celebrity Domestic Violence pool? What’s that? Nobody? Alright, no one wins the money.
According to New Canaan Police, Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct over the weekend after a pretty heated domestic dispute.
The NC Advertiser reported…
A call to police about the incident at the couple’s New Canaan house was made about 8 p.m. Saturday night, police said. But details over what were not immediately released. New Canaan Police hold a weekly press briefing with local media late each Monday morning.
Simon and Brickell, who have been married for more than 20 years, have lived in New Canaan with their three children for years. New Canaan Police did not want to release their address. Neither of their names are listed in the town tax records; but their house is in the northern section of town.
They both were scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday morning at 10 a.m.
I’ll be honest, of all the celebrities who live here in Connecticut these are the last two that I would have ever guessed to get arrested on domestic violence charges. Though, Paul does have more than a few Grammy statues in that house that could make for pretty dangerous weapons.
The other interesting part of this is how it says they were arrested for “disorderly conduct”. Which could also mean they were just having a rager party at their New Canaan home and the neighbors had enough of the noise. But even that seems far-fetched since it’s PAUL SIMON! What, is he doing keg stands with Edie and turning Graceland up to 100 on his Sonos system?
Either way, it will be real interesting to see how this one shakes out.
