Paul Simon Arrested

Paul Simon's gonna need a bridge ... 'cause he's in some troubled water -- after getting arrested for disorderly conduct following an incident with his wife in Connecticut this weekend.

72-year-old Simon and his wife, 48-year-old Edie Brickell -- from the band New Bohemians -- were both taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct after a heated domestic dispute. 

Cops were called to the couple's house around 8 pm that night. 

It's unclear why the two were fighting. 

FYI -- Simon and Edie have been married for 22 years and have 3 kids together.

2:45 P.M. PDT -- The Simons' attorney just gave us this statement from Edie, "I got my feelings hurt and I picked a fight with my husband. The police called it disorderly. Thank God it's orderly now."

11:12 A.M. PDT
-- Paul left court a short time ago, insisting he and his wife still love each other. Edie left from a different exit several minutes earlier ... and didn't say a word.

I feel like a boycott of their music and performance is necessary. There is no place for abusers in society. They can go hang out with the racists
