Rick Springfield

I'm NOT Guilty of DUI

7/5/2011 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rick Springfield pled not guilty to two counts of DUI this morning -- stemming from his arrest in Malibu back in May.

Lawyers for Springfield entered the plea on behalf of the 80's rocker -- who did not appear in court.

As TMZ first reported -- the "Jessie's Girl" singer was busted in Malibu on May 1-- after he was pulled over by L.A. County Sheriffs and blew a .10.

Springfield faces a maximum of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted on both counts.

The 61-year-old is due back in court on August 15.

He's almost 100 years old. You'd think at some point he would grow up.

I'll appear in court and as a witness on Rick's behalf.

We were together that night -

Split exactly one beer -

And one girly-shot.

@ Oh much respect to Charles - (TMZ Live)

For calling Harvey out on something:

Harvey's unwillingness to admit error/mistakes -

- Apologize -

Harvey would sooner defend a lame position/rationale -

Than say, "You know what, I was wrong on that one."

Ironically it's also what makes Harvey Levin great -

His ability to cling to stubborn.

Mixed in with the insecurities we all naturally have ...

Everyone WANTS to be right - all of the TIME - and no matter WHAT.

Charles is a lightning-rod for the show, at least for me.

Unafraid to disagree - even if it's on camera and with his own boss - pay Charles more money -

Charles classic, "I was accused of farting in the news room," should have been an entire show unto itself -

Too often TMZ misses what's-truly-funny -

Because Harvey insists on being in charge of humor, as well.

If something isn't funny and you say so -

Harvey will disagree and go to others - who will obediantly take Harvey's side and position -

Wimps like Max.

If he does any time in jail I'll be surprised. I'm sure he's ran to rehab to show the judge what a good little boy he is.

Rick was a one-hit wonder. I am surprised he even made it to TMZ news. Still looks good though, considering his advanced age

Well if they judge him by the mug shot, he's either drunk or skid row look in in style....
