Perhaps she shouldn't have strapped her hands across his engine....?

Curious. He's not been known as a drinker.

Perhaps it's his age.

It's now being reported that his breathalyzer showed his blood alcohol content was 0.02; the legal limit in New Jersey is 0.08. Not sure what this is about.

But in the meantime, Jeep has pulled his ad. So there's a silver lining.

I haven’t read anything about this but that’s pretty strange. I imagine you’d be legal in most European countries with that BAC. Maybe he was obviously fucked up on something else—pills maybe. If his car had reeked of pot they would’ve busted him for that too, so who knows. Or it could be trumped up bullshit.

I think it’s weird that someone with his resources wouldn’t have someone to drive for him, but then again, driving is fun.

Perhaps the decimal point was misplaced Chas....?

:lol:

I think the actual story is Bruce was out on his bike, he stopped , some fans were there and walked over... they were talking, the fans offered him a drink from a canister they had with them (for a selfie) and the police just happened to be driving by and arrested him for drinking whilst in possession of the keys for a motorbike. (And that's all paraphrased from reports on a Bruce site I frequent).
I have put the ignorant, inflammatory bore on ignore.

Lawrence Taylor...ex NFL player. Greatest Linebacker to play the game. Played for The New York Giants. Had a 'colourful' lifestyle (both whilst playing and afterwards) in which drugs played a 'fairly prominent' role.

So the thread title should be changed to 'Bruce Springsteen, Pandemic Denier, Held For Symbolic Act Of Defiance Of Lockdown Requirements'.

NJ shore cops they pull everyone over pathetic. They probably saw it was Springsteen and teaching him a lesson to stay in Asbury Park.

While I agree don't think he gets the NJ Shore deal.
Rapaport is a BENNY (from Bayonne, Elizabeth, Newark, and New York City). !!!

LT - played second half of a season with a fractured tibia and believe did it with cocaine.

As predicted. By some, anyhow.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/musi ... d-1132609/

“The blood alcohol reading was .02, which as the court is aware, is well under the state limit of .08,” Baker said.

After pleading guilty to the consuming alcohol in a closed area charge, Springsteen, who has no prior criminal history, was handed down a $500 fine. When asked how long he needed to pay the fine, Springsteen told the judge, “I think I can pay that immediately, your Honor.”

Springsteen’s lawyer Mitchell Ansell told Rolling Stone in a statement after the hearing: “Mr. Springsteen is pleased with the outcome of today’s court appearance. The prosecutor was unable to provide the necessary evidence and facts as it related to the charge of Driving under the Influence (DUI) and Reckless Driving and therefore dismissed both of those charges. Mr. Springsteen, who has no previous criminal record of any kind, voluntarily plead guilty to a violation of consuming an alcoholic beverage in a closed area, agreeing to a fine of $500. We want to thank the Court and will have no further comment at this time.”
