Rick Springfield Arrested for Missing DUI Court Date
A woman like Jessie's girl might be hard to find — but Rick Springfield can be hard to find, too.
'80s rocker Rick Springfield was arrested on March 8 for failing to show up in court recently on a DUI charge, according to TMZ.
Deputies arrested him at his home, and he was later released.
Rick claims that his absence from court was a misunderstanding.
"I didn't know that I was supposed appear in court a few weeks ago," Rick wrote on Facebook from the police station. "It was to do with the old DUI charge, and it's been cleared up, and I am free to go."
This all stems from Rick's DUI arrest back in May 2011, when Rick was pulled over in Malibu and smelled like booze.
Rick's song "Jessie's Girl" hit number one in 1981, and he has also appeared over the years on the soap opera General Hospital.
We're hoping Rick will finally be able to put this all behind him and move forward.
