PAUL SIMON AND EDIE BRICKELL ARRESTED

NORWALK, Conn. (AP) -- Paul Simon and Edie Brickell (EE'-dee brih-KEL') were in court yesterday holding hands while they faced disorderly conduct charges. Simon told a judge in Norwalk, Connecticut, he had a rare argument with Brickell on Saturday night at their home in New Canaan. Police chief Leon Krolikowski says officers responded to a 911 hangup and found minor injuries in what they believed was a case of domestic violence.

Police will not say what the argument was about but they say there was aggressiveness on both sides. Simon and Brickell have been married for nearly 22 years and have three children.

'THE VOICE' TOP TEN PERFORM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It was a night of tears on "The Voice." Cat Perkins from Adam Levine's team was crying because she was so into performing "Landslide." Blake Shelton said she was going to make him cry. Levine told Bria Kelly from Team Usher he didn't feel connected to her version of "I'm With You." She left the stage in tears.
