Prosecutors dropping case about fight

– Prosecutors on Tuesday said they were dropping a disorderly conduct case against Paul Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, that stemmed from a fight at the couple’s home.

Simon, 72, and Brickell, 48, did not appear in Norwalk Superior Court, where prosecutors told a judge they were declining to pursue the case, meaning the charges will be dropped and eventually erased after 13 months.

Prosecutors declined to comment outside court. A telephone message left for the couple’s attorney, Andrew Bowman, was not immediately returned.

The couple fought April 26 inside a cottage on their property in New Canaan, police said.

Brickell told officers she confronted her husband after he did something to “break her heart,” according to police, but she did not provide any details. She told police Simon shoved her and she slapped him.

The singers were married in 1992. They have three children.
