Paul Simon Arrested For Domestic Violence

Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell were arrested over the weekend by police in Connecticut and charged with domestic violence. As you read this the couple is being arraigned. Apparently it was a huge mess outside the courthouse because it is not everyday you get Paul Simon doing a perp walk. The couple have been married for about two decades. They have three children together which matches the number of marriages Paul Simon has had.

Wonder if it was about the teacher? :)

Topper Madison said...

Is this one of the 50 ways?

Nutty_Flavor said...

Shouldn't Edie's name be in the headline as well? Right now it reads like a one-sided attack, when the text indicates that both were charged.

I bet she said, "You would have been nothing with out Garfunkel," so he hit her with a guitar shot.

loopymommy said...

Shit, I saw her singing with Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers last week. She looked so happy and sounded pretty good. Paul Simon is probably the one artist whose concerts I've seen the most. Dayum.

Pookie said...

oh, edie.

perhaps she's not aware of too many things, she knows what she is, if you know what i mean.

Steampunk Jazz said...

@ Nutty, perhaps we are the only ones that think Edie ranks as high, ( not that she could touch Simon and Garfunkel, but his solo.,)
Nah, male= battery
Sexist bastard.

AHHH, MY CHILDHOOD!!!!

What I am is what I am are you what you are or what

Mark Kaepplein said...

Reports elsewhere are that charges changed to disorderly conduct.

Renoblondee said...

Awesome! Lol @Pookie

Steampunk Jazz said...

Hey Count, what are we wired together today?

Suzie P said...

I've know her for thirty years. She's totally sweet but there no way in hell he's going to throw a punch at her without her coming out swinging. If she got arrested for defending herself, well that just really blows.

Jessi said...

I'm usually not shocked by news like this, but this gave me the "What?!!!!!!"

Steven O said...

See ya, me and Edie-o down by the courthouse.

sandybrook said...

Take the Bridge Over Troubled Water Paul.

Sass71 said...

Maybe she tried to take his Kodachrome away.

Violet said...

Domestic violence is no laughing matter people. I am leaving, I am leaving (and the fighter still remains).

Tina Mallette said...

I agree Nutty and I am glad to see the police did indeed lay charges vs both if they were both being violent to each other.

Leekalicious said...

Holy Crap! I thought they were just gently hippy people. Bad on whoever hit first.

Tina Mallette said...

Charges downgraded hmmm would they be if your names weren't Paul Simon and Edie Brickell?

Leekalicious said...

Oh for crap sakes gentle hippies

CridChild said...

Wasn't there a blind recently about her cheating on Paul with their kid's teacher?

Steampunk Jazz said...

Rise above this guys, take a trip to Graceland.
@CridChild, is that the final consensus? It was Edie in the schoolhouse

Steampunk Jazz said...

@steam, Edie in the schoolhouse with the lead pipe? :-D
That might be the reason, right there. I guess the parent teacher conference gave it up..

Count Jerkula said...

Could be Steam, we are both Taurus.

Happy Birthday.

Sherry said...

Oh happy birthday Steampunk!

There's got to be more to this story. They probably had a verbal fight and threw things but no one was beating on the other. I hope. Don't see either on being violent. But in domestic issues they always arrest both.

Nice play on words all...

She asked him again, "Are you what you are? Or what?". He snapped.

I must have seen the New Bohemians at least 50 times in Dallas between 1985-1995. Great band.

texas rose said...

Nice Topper:)

Steampunk Jazz said...

@Count, Sweet! Thanks O:-)

Steampunk Jazz said...

Thanks sherry, it Been a good day!

Rhody said...

I love his music, but he has a reputation in the music business as a douche. I know for a fact that after 9/11 when they were putting together that benefit concert in NYC, that he was the only one that had crazy demands. Everyone else checked their egos and said I'll be there whenever, and he refused to participate unless he got to close the show ans sang the songs he wanted among other things.He finally calmed down but it I remember thinking how his public persona is so different from who he really is.
Maybe she did cheat, but I think the blame is on him.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Paul and Carrie Fisher used to go at it pretty hard as well.

Happy B-Day Steampunk ! ! !

Kara said...

Dis con charges only. No domestic violence. That usually means a ruckus, not an actual fight.

lazyday603 said...

One good thing has come out of this. I dug up my cassette bootleg recordings I used to make of New Bohemian shows & they are all getting a digital makeover. Maybe I'll put them on youtube for the dozen remaining New Bohemians fans to enjoy.

msgirl said...

Rhody, I've heard the same thing .

Brenda L said...

He probably beat her up for singing that damned song one too many times! ;)

Steven O said...

50 Ways To Leave Your Lover was inspired by The fabulous Shelley Duvall, btw.

Seven of Eleven said...

Nobody called Al?!!

veee said...

Wish I could star your comment.

califblondy said...

Still crazy after all these years...

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I wonder if they will now kick Paul out of the 5-Timers Club?

auntliddy said...

I just cant. I love this man's music, hus charities, his humanity. I have to lay down now.

Sherry said...

Love that skit JBE.

B626 said...

Bet he's got a Napoleon complex.

TalksTooMuch said...

Wait, what?? When's your bday, count?

Also, it's califblondy on Saturday! Woot!

Count Jerkula said...

@TTM: You want my SS# too? I can't give specific identifiable info on a public forum like this. There are still loons lurking in the shadows. It is next week some time.

If any chicks would like to gift me buttcheek selfies, or any other sort of fappable selfie, they still have time. Don't forget to write "COUNT" or "JERKULA" or something of that nature on yourself, so I know you didn't slip me a Google Image Search find. Eyeliner or lipstick you no longer like the color of work best.

BeckyMae said...

Paul Simon and Edie Brickell are MARRIED?? How did I not know this?? My little 90's mind is blown.....

TalksTooMuch said...

Easy there, Tiger. I'm sure there's a search engine out there that can find people based on a Day/Month date and a penchant for buttcheek selfies, but I bet you're the only one that knows how to use it.

Happy secret birthday next week! I hope you are gifted with many, many pictures of random bums.

But use the forward-facing camera and timer, ladies! It's 2014!

Also, feel free to use a throw away email account, if you worry about anonymity.

Henriette said...

Weren't they the popular guess for a blind a couple of weeks ago?

Aoife said...

This came as a surprise. And I read the blind a couple of weeks ago.

Sad that he's a douche.

#Gitit said...

Maybe she took his Kodachrome away?

Ok, that was bad but still. lol! I don't know any of the deets, but I have heard he is an uberdouche, so I'm gonna blame him.
