Bruce Springsteen was arrested at New Jersey's Gateway National Recreation Area in November for driving while intoxicated (DWI), reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area, Billboard can confirm.
A National Park Service spokesperson said in a statement that the "Born in the USA" singer "was cooperative throughout the process." Per the NPS, Springsteen received three citations: DWI, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in an enclosed area. Billboard has reached out to Springsteen for comment. New Jersey's Asbury Park Press reports that Springsteen's blood alcohol content was just .02 -- a quarter of the state's legal limit of .08 -- when he was arrested in November; Billboard has independently verified this report.
TMZ broke the news Wednesday (Feb. 10) and reported that he has an upcoming court appearance in the next few weeks.
