breaking newsEdie Brickell had a "strong odor of alcohol on her breath" during the heated argument that turned physical last week with hubby Paul Simon, this according to local police.
Simon and Brickell were both arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after a domestic dispute at their Connecticut home last weekend.
The New Canaan police report, which was obtained by the Stamford Advocate, says Brickell told police Simon did something that "broke her heart." It goes on to say Simon shoved Brickell and she slapped him in response. That's when he called 911 ... but hung up before speaking to anyone.
Brickell told police Simon "was acting like a spoiled baby by calling 911 and that he did not care about their children." The report says Edie had "a strong odor of alcohol on her breath" and became agitated at times.
Seems like they've both calmed down since then -- they were both in court this week and refused to get any kind of protective order.
