NORWALK, Conn. — Paul Simon and his wife, singer Edie Brickell, appeared briefly in court for their disorderly conduct case. Their next hearing is June 17 in Norwalk Superior Court.

A police report said Brickell and Simon became physical with each other during an April 26 argument inside a cottage on their New Canaan property.

Brickell told police he shoved her, and she slapped him. The report said Simon suffered a superficial cut to his ear, and Brickell had a bruise on her wrist.
