A federal prosecutor dropped charges of drunken and reckless driving against rock legend Bruce Springsteen.
But the musician pleaded guilty to a charge of drinking alcohol in a national park late last year, NBC News reported Wednesday.
“I had two small shots of tequila,” Springsteen told a federal magistrate in a virtual arraignment Wednesday morning, according to local Jersey outlet the Daily Journal.
Springsteen, 71, was arrested in November at Gateway National Recreation Area in New Jersey, also known as Sandy Hook, the U.S. Department of the Interior said earlier this month.
The arrest was made minutes from Springsteen’s home in Colts Neck.
