NORWALK, Conn. (AP) _ Paul Simon and his wife Edie Brickell are due back in a Connecticut court for a hearing in the couple’s disorderly conduct case.

The hearing is set for Tuesday morning. A police report says the 48-year-old Brickell and the 72-year-old Simon became physical with each other during an April 26 argument inside a cottage on their property in New Canaan.

Brickell told police that he shoved her and that she slapped him. The report says that Simon suffered a superficial cut to his ear, and that Brickell, who smelled of alcohol, had a bruise on her wrist.

Both said in court April 28 that they did not consider the other a threat, and no protective order was issued.

The singers were married in 1992. They have three children.
