Dreamiest Mugshot Ever? Rick Springfield Arrested in Malibu
Soap star and "Jessie's Girl" singer Rick Springfield was arrested in Malibu last night on suspicion of drunk driving.
According to the Sheriff's Department, Springfield, 61, caught the attention of a patrol deputy from the Malibu/Lost Hills Station at approximately 8 PM as he "accelerated rapidly" in his (boss) 1963 Corvette while driving on Pacific Coast Highway.
Springfield was given field sobriety tests and consented to a breathalyzer, which indicated a blood-alcohol level of 0.10%. The state limit is 0.08%.
Springfield was taken into custody at the Malibu/Lost Hills Station and released on $5,000 bond around 2 AM.
Earlier that day, Springfield was promoting his new book, Late, Late at Night, at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. LAT throws a hell of an afterparty, huh?
