The ’80s heart-throb was taken into custody at Malibu/Lost Hills police station around 8 p.m. after blowing a .10% into a breathalyzer, and was later released on $5,000 bond after he sobered up at 2:10 a.m. that night. See Rick Springfield’s booking mugshot!
Sheriff deputies pulled the soap opera actor turned musician over after he made a traffic stop on the Pacific Coast Highway in his 1963 Corvette, according to Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
“He made a maneuver away from the light and it prompted them to stop and pull him over,” Whitmore said.
After being pulled over, police smelled alcohol on Springfield’s breath, so they asked him to take a breathalyzer test where he blew a .10% and was later arrested and taken into custody.
