Rick Springfield Mug Shot

TMZ broke the story ...  the '80s rocker was pulled over in L.A. at around 8 last night ... and when officers approached his vehicle, they smelled booze.

Law enforcement sources tell us Rick's blood alcohol level was .10 -- exceeding California's .08 legal limit.

It is a sad mug shot for many reasons. I know when I am in a lot of pain either physically or emotionally at my age I feel like a lost pupppy dog.
I know to see my 74 yr old mom cry is the same. As we age we are sad sometimes, we wanna be young again, tie one on eh Rick? LOL have a good time and dang you still look like 39 huney so let er rip but get a driver and drink about half that amount.

Uh, wait...he was over the limit, booked and release on his own recognizance? What happened to bail? What happened to holding them 24 hours in order to sober up?

truth and mercy    

Rick said in his book that he suffers from depression... I wonder if he has tried to get to the root cause of his problem? Maybe he is still immaturely living in the past/ the good times of his rock star youth instead of embrassing his present self .... he got OLDER, so what, everybody does! Rick should really start to work on a spirit of THANKSGIVING and GRATITUDE and leave the past behind, today is a new day, a second chance to have a happy life, and to LEARN to LOVE himself exactly as he is.... the ONLY person to impress is our own self. Step out of the past and into a glorious new future!!! Good luck

I assume hes crying becuase hes writing/wrote a book about how hes been sober for a decade. Well, there goes THAT!

I know he's touring....the Concert Update people have been sending me wemails telling me he's playing near me soon.

He looks good for his age BUT I think he's had too much plastic surgery. he sure was a honey in the 80s though.

By the way, as much fun as the "Jesses Girl" jokes are he had other hits too! I have his Greatest Hits CD! Dont Talk To Strangers , Affair Of The Heart, What kind Of Fool Am I, Love Somebody, Human Touch ...he had a few gems.
