Paul Simon and Wife Edie Brickell Freed From Domestic Violence Case

June 18, 2014, 2:21 am GMT

Prosecutors told a judge in Norwalk, CT on Tuesday, June 17 that they would not pursue the case against the couple.



There's no more to Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell's legal case. Prosecutors said on Tuesday, June 17 that they were dropping the domestic violence charges which were filed against the singers couple after an argument.

The court clerk in Norwalk, Connecticut told several media sites that prosecutors told a judge they were declining to pursue the case, meaning the charges will be dropped and eventually erased after 13 months. Simon and Brickell did not appear at the Norwalk Superior Court at that time.

The singer and his wife were arrested on disorderly conduct charges after cops were called to their New Canaan, Connecticut home on April 26. Brickell allegedly slapped Simon and they got into a shoving match. They were released from jail the next morning.

The couple, who has been married since 1992, left hand in hand and told reporters that they were still in love with each other. They told Judge William Wenzel last month that the spat was atypical of their relationship and that they posed no threat to one another.

Via her lawyer, Brickell said, "I got my feelings hurt and I picked a fight with my husband. The police called it disorderly. Thank God it's orderly now."
