NORWALK, Conn. (AP) -- Paul Simon, 72, and his wife, Edie Brickell, 47, were arrested on disorderly conduct charges by officers investigating a family dispute, but the couple held hands in court Monday and said they did not feel threatened by the other.

Simon told a Norwalk Superior Court judge that he had a rare argument with his wife Saturday night at their home in New Canaan.

Simon and Brickell, who have been married since 1992, were each given a misdemeanor summons and one of them agreed to leave and go to another location, Krolikowski said.
