(NEXSTAR) — Bruce Springsteen was arrested in New Jersey for a DWI in November, Fox News reported Wednesday.

A public affairs officer confirmed to Fox News that the incident happened at a New Jersey park and also included citations for driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.

“On November 14, 2020, Bruce Springsteen was arrested in Gateway National Recreation Area and received three citations; DWI, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area,” read the statement made to Fox News.

TMZ was the first to report the arrest. It reported that Springsteen is expected to appear in a New Jersey court within the next few weeks.
