Rick Springfield Mugshot


Rick Springfield was just happy to be home in time to rock out tonight.

The "Jessie's Girl" singer was arrested at his L.A.-area home this morning on a bench warrant issued Wednesday after he missed a court date pertaining to a past DUI bust.

But, it turned out help was just a phone call away!

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department confirmed to E! News that Springfield called his wife, she brought the requisite paperwork to the station to clear up the pressing issue and he ultimately was not booked on any charge.

"My home away from home. Lost hills sheriff station," Springfield later wrote on Facebook, also posting a picture of the station. "Arrested this [a.m.] on a bench warrant. I didn't know that I was supposed appear in court a few weeks ago. It was to do with the old DUI charge and it's been cleared up and i am free to go.

"Thought I might miss the gig tonite but I will be there and we will celebrate together. Life is not boring. XOXO."

Per his website, Springfield was scheduled to play the Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, Calif., tonight. He also jammed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Ellen this week with Dave Grohl and the Sound City Players, and all of the above are due in Austin next week for South by Southwest.

The 63-year-old former General Hospital star pleaded no contest to reckless driving with "driving under the influence conditions" back in August and was sentenced to probation and an alcohol-education program.
