Springsteen faces drinkdriving charge
HIGHLANDS: Musician Bruce Springsteen is facing a drinkdriving charge in New Jersey.
Springsteen was arrested November 14 in a part of the Gateway National Recreation Area on the New Jersey coast, a spokesman for the National Park Service confirmed yesterday.
Springsteen received citations for driving while under the influence, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area. The spokesman said Springsteen was cooperative.
A message was left seeking comment with Springsteen’s publicist.
The news of the arrest came on the heels of two highprofile appearances. On January 20, Springsteen performed as part of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, singing Land of Hope and Dreams in front of the Lincoln Memorial, and during Monday’s Super Bowl, he appeared in a Jeep television commercial.
Jeep released a statement saying it had paused airing the commercial featuring Springsteen. — AP
