Paul Simon is no threat. This is according to his wife in a statement made in court on Monday. The singer and his wife were both arrested and charged with disorderly conduct on Saturday night after the police were called to their home. The couple is now ready to move on from the incident, but they will still need to appear in court. On April 28, ABC News shared the latest on the couple's arrest and their appearance in court.

What happened to cause the arrest of the couple over the weekend? The couple was arrested when the police showed up after a call about a 'family dispute' at their home. When they arrived, the police found signs of physical violence. There were minor injuries. However, Brickell is not at all worried about living with her husband following the argument. It is she that told the judge on Monday that Simon was no threat to her.

Brickell is Simon's third wife, and they have three children together. The couple married in 1992. Before this third marriage, Simon was married to Carrie Fisher and Peggy Harper. Paul and Edie's court troubles are not yet done. They will need to appear in court again on this disorderly conduct charge. Their next court date is currently set for May 16.

What do you think about this couple's legal troubles? Is this arrest just a sign of a normal couple having an argument that got out of hand? Should Edie be more concerned about her husband?
