According to multiple reports, the couple was arrested on Monday, April 28, at the New Canaan, Conn. home they share. The singers were reportedly brought in on "some sort of a domestic violence charge," sources at the New Canaan Police Department told NBCConnecticut.

Grammy winner Simon, 72, married former New Bohemians frontwoman Brickell in May 1992. They are parents to three children, Adrian, Lulu, and Gabriel.

While there are few details to the charges as of yet, the Simon & Garfunkel alum and the "What I Am" singer, 48, reportedly engaged in a dispute this weekend. Police in New Canaan said they responded to a 911 hang up call that was made Saturday night.

According to the AP, officers responded to a "family dispute" at the home on Saturday evening. The publication reported that at the couple's court appearance on Monday, Simon said the commotion was a "rare argument" between the couple. The two reportedly held hands and said they did not feel threatened by one another.

In a statement released through her lawyer, Brickell said, "I got my feelings hurt and picked a fight with my husband. The police called it disorderly. Thank God it’s orderly now."
