Rocker Bruce Springsteen was arrested in New Jersey in November on a charge of driving while intoxicated, authorities said Wednesday.

The “Born To Run” singer was also cited on November 14, 2020 for reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area, in New Jersey’s Gateway National Recreation Area.

“Springsteen was cooperative throughout the process,” a National Park Service spokesperson said.

The 71-year-old rock icon will make a court appearance in the coming weeks, according to entertainment outlet TMZ, which broke the news.

Springsteen’s representative did not immediately respond to AFP request for comment.

The incident occurred a few weeks after The Boss released his 20th studio album, “Letter To You” — a return to the layered guitars, dramatic percussion and glockenspiel that swelled into the signature sound he coined with his E Street Band, the group he’s performed with since 1972.
