Rick Springfield is probably wishing he had Jessie's Girl ... to post $1,250 bail and spring him from jail. Dude got popped for DUI in L.A. last night!
Atrocious intros aside, the 61-year-old rocker and soap opera star was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk around 8:00 PM for a traffic violation.
When officers approached the vehicle, they noticed the smell of booze and requested Springfield perform field sobriety tests. He didn't do so hot.
Nor did he handle it well when he was booked ...
Rick Springfield's mug shot is among the saddest we've seen.
Law enforcement sources report that Rick's blood alcohol content was measured at .10 and .08. The legal limit in California is .08, so he was arrested.
Springfield was taken to a nearby jail, where he was booked and released on his own recognizance ... and was apparently embarrassed about it all.
Seriously, this is quite the contrast from the mug shot taken when Flavor Flav was arrested over the weekend. Flav was happy as a clam! Not Rick.
