Rick Springfield Busted for DUI
Former GENERAL HOSPITAL star and '80s rocker Rick Springfield ("Jessie's Girl") was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk in Los Angeles last night TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, the 61-year-old singer was pulled over by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. around 8:00 PM for a traffic violation. When officers approached the vehicle, they noticed the smell of booze and asked Springfield to perform several field sobriety tests.
