Paul Simon, Edie Brickell Go Courting

Both singers faced a judge in Norwalk Superior Court Monday after their weekend arrest by New Canaan police on disorderly conduct charges stemming from the family dispute.

Folk singer Edie Brickell, who has been married to Simon for 22 years, confessed that she had started the fight and that any rift was now healed.

Simon, 72, and Brickell, 48, were charged in New Canaan, Connecticut on Saturday night around 8.20pm at a cottage on their estate.

The couple's lawyer said the fight involved only 'a slight push' and said that Brickell had told him that it was only the fourth fight the couple have had in their 22-year marriage.

The couple arrived at the Norwalk court on Monday, smiling and holding hands, before sitting next to each other for the arraignment.

Simon said the dispute with wife was 'atypical', adding: 'Neither of us have any fear.' Brickell, who is significantly taller than her husband, told the judge: 'He's no threat to me at all.'
