Bruce Springsteen arrested in New Jersey
It has been revealed that Bruce Springsteen was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence at a New Jersey national park last year.
National Park Service spokeswoman Brenda Ling said the musician was arrested November 14 in Gateway National Recreation Area, also known as Sandy Hook.
Ms Ling said he was taken into the station for a number of offenses, including driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area.
Springsteen was reportedly cooperative throughout the process.
The shocking news follows just days after Springsteen’s Super Bowl commercial.
In the two-minute spot for Jeep, Springsteen says the country will again see unity and says “there’s hope on the road ahead.”
In his 2016 autobiography “Born to Run,” Springsteen said he avoided drugs and didn’t try alcohol until he was 22.
He mentioned his father as a source for staying on the right track.
“He’s in good shape by not doing drugs. It’s something he doesn’t have to preach about. He’s a living example of what happens when you never do drugs your whole life,” Springsteen’s E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt told Rolling Stone in 2012.
“I mean, I’m sure he’s taken a drink or two a few times in his life, but he was never a drinker either. And he eats right and he’s in the gym. Well, that’s what happens,” Van Zandt said.
“Don’t do drugs. Don’t drink, eat right, go to the gym and you can rock & roll at 62, too.”
