Rick Springfield Pleads No Contest After DUI & Death Threats, Narrowly Avoids Jail

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

Same chorus, different verse!

While country star Randy Travis sobered up in a Texas drunk tank after allegedly driving drunk and threatening cops, rock veteran Rick Springfield cut a deal with SoCal prosecutors and confessed to plead no contest to astonishingly similar crimes!

Back in May of 2011, Malibu coppers pulled Rick over and smelled some booze on his breath.

One thing lead to another, as it so often does, and suddenly the dude who sang Jessie's Girl was threatening to kill a police officer and his family!

Yowzers!!

Sources tell us that Rick's deal is

Rick Springfield General Hospital

Did you know 80's pop star Rick Springfield was also an 80's soap star??

In an attempt to keep the beloved but ailing General Hospital on the air, the show has recently been resurrecting a myriad of old characters including Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers).

Next stop on GH memory lane: Docter Noah Drake (the Rickster himself!).

Rick Springfield Says His Mugshot Is WAY Better Than Nick Nolte's…

rick springfield vs nick nolte mugshot

Rick's mugshot brings all the boys to the yard, and he's like, "It's better than Nick's!"

When speaking about his recent DUI case, Rick Springfield had the following to say about his mugshot:

"I have seen my mug shot. It’s way better than Nick Nolte's. I’m thinking of going back, cause I liked the lighting so much, and doing a shoot."

Ha! We'll just assume you're joking around, Rick. While we give you credit for not smiling in your mugshot, there's NO WAY it compares to Nick Nolte's! His is a classic. It's the Citizen Kane of mugshots.

What do U think? Does Rick Springfield's mugshot even come close to Nick Nolte's?

Rick Springfield Pleads NOT GUILTY To DUI Charges

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

rick springfield mugshot

We haven't seen this much drama since Rick's General Hospital days!

Last week, we learned that Rick Springfield was being charged with two counts of DUI stemming from an arrest in Malibu last May.

Fortunately for Rick, they were only misdemeanor charges, and he faces a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Guess that's STILL too much for him though, because today he pleaded not guilty to the DUI charges, even though he blew a .10 in the breath tests at the time of his arrest.

We can't imagine how Rick is going to get out of this one scot-free, but who knows? Maybe he'll get a judge who's a major fan of Jessie's Girl! Ha!

Do U think Rick Springfield will get off the hook? Or is he wasting everyone's time?

Rick Springfield Charged With Two Counts Of DUI

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

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."

Truth!

Well, you brought this on to yourself Rick. Hopefully, you've learned your lesson!
