Bruce Springsteen was reportedly arrested in November for ‘driving while intoxicated’ and is due to appear in court in the next few weeks.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the Born In The USA star, 71, was arrested on November 17 in his home state of New Jersey.
The singer was allegedly ‘cited for DWI (driving while intoxicated), reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area’.
Sources claimed Springsteen was cooperative throughout his arrest and should be appearing in court in the coming weeks.
The news comes after Springsteen appeared in his first Super Bowl commercial over the weekend, appearing in an advert for Jeep where he shared a message of hope.
The music icon also made chart history last October after scoring his 12th number one album on the Official Charts.
His album, Letter To meant he became the first credited solo artist to have a number one album in five consecutive decades, topping the charts in the 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s and 20s.
Springsteen also revealed last year that he was missing being able to perform live for fans due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic meaning live shows and events were brought to a standstill around the world.
He told Zane Lowe on Apple Music that his new album was made to be performed to crowds, explaining: ‘This is great material to play live.
‘It’s very painful to not be able to go out and play right now, because this is material that’ll play incredible on stage.
‘I wanted to go back to a style probably closest, you’d have to go back to maybe Born To Run, where I gave Roy [Bittan, pianist] free rein on the piano and… the songs fit those kinds of arrangements. And so it was a lovely, modern revisitation of that style.’
