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.

This is normal. Every couple fights, but they have been together for so long. Chances are, they'll make it!!

They're both a little long in the tooth to be behaving in such a way that they get arrested. Good grief.

My experience handling DV cases is that's almost cleats due to cheating or someone suspecting it. That 8th grade jealousy thing never goes away.

Never agreed with this marriage in the first place. This does not sound like Paul Simon's behavior. Is there any news he did this before?
