Singer Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell were arrested Saturday night for disorderly conduct following an apparent domestic dispute at their Connecticut home, police said. They were both set to appear in court Monday morning.

The police were called at about 8 p.m. Saturday over a dispute in their home, but New Canaan police did not release any details about the argument, the New Canaan Advertiser reports. Simon and Brickell have been married for more than 20 years, and live with their three children in New Canaan.

Simon, 72, has won 12 Grammy awards and is considered one of the greatest American folk songwriters of all time. His albums “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Graceland,” and “Still Crazy After All These Years” were all named album of the year.
