Police: Paul Simon made 911 call that led to arrests

Friday, May 02, 2014 - Updated: 8:15 AM

NORWALK, Conn. (AP) -- 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.

Message seeking comment were left Thursday with attorney Allan Cramer, who is representing the couple in the case.

Brickell told police the two had other physical confrontations and asked an officer to feel a lump on her head. But she would not let police photograph her injuries and declined to elaborate on the other confrontations.

Both said in court Monday they did not consider the other a threat, and no protective order was issued. They are due back in court on May 16.

"Both of us are fine together," Simon told Superior Court Judge William Wenzel. "We had an argument and it's atypical of us and neither one of us has any fear or any reason to feel threatened."

"He's no threat to me at all," Brickell added.

A duet by the pair "Like To Get To Know You" was posted on Brickell's website on Wednesday.

The lyrics are about a couple having problems but ends with the hopeful line, "I'd like to get to know you, again."

Simon and Brickell were married in 1992. They have three children together.
