American rock and roll star Donald Fagen of Steely Dan has been arrested and charged with domestic assault in an incident involving his wife in their New York City home. Fagen, 67, allegedly grabbed his wife, Libby Titus, by the arms and shoved her into a marble window frame, which resulted in "bruising and swelling to her right arm, as well as substantial pain," according to the criminal compliant against him.
"I don't feel good," Titus told the New York Post. "I'm very tired, and I'm divorcing my husband."
Fagen has been charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment. He was released without bail and ordered to stay away from Titus. Neither he nor his publicist had any comment.
Fagen founded Steely Dan with guitarist Walter Becker in 1972. The popular band, known for hits "Reelin' in the Years" and "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" sold more than 40 million albums." Steely Dan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
Titus, 69, is an actress, songwriter and producer who launched two albums in the 1970s with producers Phil Ramone, Paul Simon and Carly Simon.
She later appeared to be having a change of heart about Fagen and said: "We're friends. I don't know what to do."
