Bruce Springsteen charged with DWI at New Jersey Recreation Area

News 11/02/2021

Bruce Springsteen was arrested on DWI charged that occurred in November at New Jersey's Gateway National Recreation Area, confirmed by the National Park Service.

The 71-year-old musician was cited for reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area.

According to the statement given to Fox, "On Nov. 14, 2020, Bruce Springsteen was arrested in Gateway National Recreation Area and received three citations: DWI, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area."

It is unknown why the news went unreported for months until the Jeep advert of the Boss was recently released.

A Park Service spokeswoman told NBC that Springsteen was "cooperative throughout the process". He is reportedly to appear in a New Jersey court within the next few weeks.

The charges immediately impacted his partnership with Jeep, for whom Springsteen starred in a Super Bowl ad over the weekend. The company has now pulled the ad from its YouTube channel.
