Bruce Springsteen will face a New Jersey judge on Wednesday for his November DWI bust – when he was allegedly seen dropping a shot of a patron with fans in a federal park.
“Boss” will be debated at a virtual hearing in Federal Enclave court at 11 am by Judge Anthony Mouton.
News broke the rocker’s nine-month run of “Glory Days” earlier this month. The arrest of 14 at the Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook after he admitted to police that he took two shots of tequila before sitting on his motorcycle.
71-year-old Springsteen allegedly refused to take a breath when he was confronted by a park ranger near the park’s historic lighthouse.
In an affidavit, the Ranger, RL Hayes, wrote that the famous singer “strongly smacked liquor approaching her person and had glasses on her eyes” and allegedly failed a field test.
His blood-alcohol content was recorded at 0.08 – while driving below the state’s legal limit of 0.08 – although it was unclear when the test was finally performed.
Springsteen is charged with DWI, careless driving and alcohol consumption in a closed area.
He is being represented by Michelle Ansell, a New Jersey lawyer who also accused Colts neck murderer Paul Caniro.
Neither Springsteen nor Ansell have publicly commented on the arrest.
