Bruce Springsteen is facing several charges after he was arrested for a DWI in the Sandy Hook area of New Jersey.

Springsteen’s arrest took place on Nov. 14 at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, the Asbury Park Press reports. The singer was charged with driving while intoxicated, consuming alcohol in a closed area, and reckless driving.

Since the area where Springsteen was arrested is owned by the federal government, the 71-year-old will face his charges at a federal court in Newark.

The musician will stand before a judge in an enclave court, which is the federal version of a traffic court. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will prosecute the case, however, a date has not been set.

In a statement, Brenda Ling, a spokesperson for Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook, said Springsteen was “cooperative throughout the process” when he was arrested last year, CNBC reports.

In the past, Springsteen has been praised by fans and band members for his healthy lifestyle and workout regimen. In his autobiography “Born to Run,” the star revealed he avoided drugs and didn’t try alcohol until he was 22 years old.

Springsteen explained his aversion to drinking was caused by how the substance affected his father.

The November 2020 arrest appears to be Springsteen’s first traffic violation. There are no municipal court records in New Jersey of the star receiving any other types of citations or parking tickets. 

News of the arrest comes after Springsteen starred on his first Super Bowl commercial over the weekend. The singer appeared in a two-minute ad for Jeep, which featured the musician driving around and sharing a message of hope.
