PAUL SIMON AND EDIE BRICKELL’S EMBARRASSING INCIDENT TURNED OUT OK!
We’ve never seen anyone get out of an embarrassing situation more gracefully than Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell. The husband and wife were arrested for disorderly conduct when they had a domestic dispute at their Connecticut home. During an argument, Paul tried to leave and Edie gave him a shove to stop him. He shoved back and called 911. (She’s six inches taller than him and at 47, 25 years younger.) Injuries were very minor and they were both apologetic but cops had to file a report. Later in court there was no name-calling – only hand-holding. Edie said “It was my fault – got my feelings hurt and picked a fight with my husband.” Paul insisted the whole incident was HIS fault. “I hurt her deeply and got what I deserved.” They walked out together still holding hands. How civilized.
