(Newser) – Police in Connecticut say Paul Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges. A New Canaan police spokeswoman provided no other details, except to say the arrests stemmed from an incident Saturday. An arraignment in Norwalk Superior Court is expected this afternoon. The Wire reports that there's some confusion over the charges, as some outlets are reporting they're actually domestic violence charges. The pair have been married since 1992 and have three children.

Paul Simon hasn't had a hit in years. It's good to see his name in headlines again; remember, "Any publcity is good publicity".
