Music icon Paul Simon described a reported dispute with his wife Edie Brickell on Saturday as an “atypical” argument.

“The both of us are fine together,” Simon said in Norwalk Superior Court, according to the New Caanan Advertiser. “We are going to go back home and watch our son play baseball. We had an argument. It was very atypical of us.”

Both the 12-time Grammy winner and the former 1980s folk band singer were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct on Saturday. Police who responded to the incident found minor injuries. No protective order was issued in court on Monday.

“I don’t feel a need to be protected from him at all,” Brickell added, according to the report.
