Singer Paul Simon arrested for domestic violence

NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Grammy-award winning musician Paul Simon and his wife were arrested Monday morning at their Connecticut home.

Police in New Canaan say a fight between the pair led to a 9-1-1 call and their arrests.

Simon says it was a rare fight and not a big deal.

The two even held hands and sat next to each other in court when Simon told a judge there was no need for a protective order.

"Under Connecticut law, we're obligated to make an arrest because it's domestic violence," said New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski.

"That’s all I want to say. We're fine. We love each other. We're fine. We had an argument. It's over," said Simon.

Each was given a misdemeanor summons.
