Rocker and Joe Biden surrogate Bruce Springsteen is heading to court next week following his November 14 arrest and subsequent charges, which include driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area.
The “Born to Run” crooner is scheduled to appear before a judge on Wednesday, February 24, for charges related to his November arrest, which occurred at New Jersey’s Gateway National Recreation Area. The National Park Service confirmed the arrest which TMZ initially reported earlier this month.
While reports originally indicated that the “Born Free” singer remained cooperative throughout his arrest, R. L. Hayes, a park ranger, claims that Springsteen initially refused to take a preliminary breath test (PBT). “Additionally, the ranger claimed to have observed the musician ‘consume a shot of Patron tequila’ before getting on his motorcycle to ‘start the engine,’” Fox News reported.
The report described Springsteen as smelling “strongly of alcohol” and having “glassy eyes.”
