Bad business you've gotten yourself into, dude!
Rick Springfield was formally charged with two counts of DUI this morning stemming from his arrest in Malibu last May. Because they are just misdemeanor charges, Rick faces a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. If they were felony charges, FORGET ABOUT IT!
Rick also got off doubly easy as the police department decided not to press charges for Rick's outlandish remarks to the arresting officers. As we recall, he muttered something about have them "f*cking killed." However, an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. spokesperson explained officials did not take the threat seriously, saying:
"It is rare when a drunk doesn’t say something outlandish to police when they’re arrested."
Well, you brought this on to yourself Rick. Hopefully, you've learned your lesson!
