(Newser) – The disorderly conduct charges against Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell have been dropped. Simon and Brickell were arrested in April after a fight at their Connecticut home got physical, but they insisted in court that the altercation was "atypical" and they did not need to be protected from one another. Now that prosecutors have declined to pursue the case, the charges will be erased after 13 months, the AP reports.

Brickell had earlier described the fight to Rolling Stone thusly: "I got my feelings hurt and I picked a fight with my husband. The police called it disorderly. Thank God it’s orderly now." As for Simon, he told TMZ the couple is still in love.

"She got her feelings hurt" He probably told her she sings flat...and he would have been right.......

At least she admitted she was the one who picked the fight, most women wont do that, ever.
