The DUI charge was dropped against Bruce Springsteen on Wednesday (Feb. 24) after the singer pleaded guilty to consuming alcohol in a closed area and paid a fine.
According to Billboard he, “voluntarily plead[ed] guilty to a violation of consuming an alcoholic beverage in a closed area, agreeing to a fine of $500,” Mitchell Ansell of Ansell, Grimm & Aaron tells Billboard in a statement. He added that the charges of driving under the influence and reckless driving were dropped because the prosecutor was “unable to provide the necessary evidence.”
“Mr. Springsteen is pleased with the outcome of today’s court appearance,” said Ansell in his statement.
