The sound of silence? That apparently wasn't the case over the weekend at the home of Paul Simon and Edie Brickell.

Both singers, who have been married for 22 years, were arrested at their New Canaan, Conn., residence and charged with disorderly conduct, NBC News reports.

According to a news release from the New Canaan Police Department, authorities went to the couple's home on Saturday evening to investigate a "family dispute" and found probable cause to arrest Simon and Brickell.

No further details were given.

Multiple Grammy winner Simon, 72, is obviously one of music's biggest legends, thanks to both his work with Art Garfunkel and as a solo artist.

Brickell, 48, is probably best known for the song "What I Am," off of Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, the debut album by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians.

The couple tied the knot in 1992 and have three children together.
