Rick Springfield Arrested on Suspicion of Driving Under the Influence

The "Jessie's Girl" singer was released on $5,000 bond early Monday after being taken into custody in Malibu.

"Jessie's Girl" singer Rick Springfield was arrested in Malibu on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Springfield was pulled over around 8 p.m. Sunday near Pacific Coast Highway and Trancas Canyon Road, according to an L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokesman. He was driving a 1963 Corvette.

"He made a maneuver away from the light and it prompted them to stop and pull him over," the spokesman said, without giving more details about the "maneuver."

Springfield registered a 0.10% alcohol content after blowing into a breathalyzer; the legal limit in California is 0.08. He was arrested and released on $5,000 just after 2 a.m.

In addition to "Jessie's Girl," Springfield's other hits include "I've Done Everything for You." He also is known for playing Dr. Noah Drake on ABC's daytime drama General Hospital starting in the early '80s; he reprised that role after a 23-year absence for a two-year stint in 2005.
