Rick Springfield Arrested for Missed Court Date

Rick Springfield was arrested today near Los Angeles and taken into the Lost Hills Sheriff's Station after missing a court date he apparently didn't know about. "Arrested this am on a bench warrant. I didn't know that I was supposed [to] appear in court a few weeks ago," he wrote on his Facebook page with a photo of the police station. "It was to do with the old DUI charge and it's been cleared up and I am free to go."

Springfield was arrested in May 2011 after police spotted him speeding on the Pacific Coast Highway in his 1963 Corvette. He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge with "driving under the influence conditions" last August and received three years of informal probation. He was required to attend a mandatory three-month alcohol education program. He has a show tonight at Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, California, and the arrest won't affect the gig.
