EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 Grammy Award-winning singer Paul Simon, appeared in a court on Monday (April 28) with his wife, singer Edie Brickell, after a pushing match at their Connecticut home ended in charges for the pair. Both singers faced a judge in Norwalk Superior Court after their weekend arrest by New Canaan police on disorderly conduct charges stemming from the family dispute. SOUNDBITE Paul Simon saying (English): "The both of us are fine together. Neither one of us are going to go back home today, we're going to go watch our son play baseball. We had a disagreement and it's a-typical of us. Neither one of us has any fear or any reason to feel threatened. And I don't feel like I need to be protected." Brickell, 48, agreed, telling the judge, "He is no threat to me at all." The altercation occurred at a cottage on their New Canaan property, the couple's attorney said. The couple got into a dispute and when Simon attempted to leave, Brickell blocked the door, he said. The incident escalated and Brickell's mother, who was visiting, called police. Simon was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003 for his work as part of the duo Simon and Garfunkel. Brickell is best known for her 1988 hit song "What I Am," which was released by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians. The two are slated to return to court next month.
