Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Springsteen was arrested on November 14 at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, NJ where he was cited for DWI, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area. “Springsteen was cooperative throughout the process,” explains a spokesperson from the National Park Service.
He is set for a court appearance in the next few weeks and was reportedly cooperative throughout the arrest.
Springsteen recently made his debut in his first-ever Super Bowl commercial. Appearing for Jeep, the commercial saw Springsteen offering a vision of unity and proclaiming “there’s hope on the road up ahead.”
Prior to that, Springsteen performed as part of the primetime “Celebrating America” special on Inauguration Day. “I want to offer this small prayer for our country,” Springsteen said before his performance, echoing the message he sent in his Super Bowl commercial.
With the Lincoln Memorial serving as a backdrop, Springsteen performed the song “Land of Hope and Dreams.” A studio version of the song was released on his 2012 record Wrecking Ball, but was written all the way back in 1999. Springsteen and the E Street Band performed the song during their 1999 tour and beyond as an official live recording appeared on the two-disc album Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band: Live In New York City.
Back in October, Springsteen released his twentieth studio album Letter to You. The record marks his first new studio album with the E Street Band since 2014’s High Hopes. “We made the album in only five days, and it turned out to be one of the greatest recording experiences I’ve ever had,” Springsteen said in a statement at the time.
