Springsteen was arrested under the suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol at a national park in New Jersey November last year, authorities confirmed on Wednesday.

The singer, nicknamed the Boss, was apprehended November 14th in Gateway National Area and charges included driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area, according to the National Park Service spokesperson Brenda Ling.

Springsteen, who is a well-known New Jersey native, was cooperative throughout the process according to Ling.

The news about the arrest comes days after the debut of Springsteen’s first Super Bowl commercial. In the two-minute spot for Jeep, Springsteen says the country will again see unity and says “there’s hope on the road up ahead.”

However, the said Super Bowl commercial has been put on hold according to a spokesperson for the Jeep brand. “It would be inappropriate for us to comment on the details of a matter we have only read about and we cannot substantiate,” the spokesperson stated.

“But it’s also right that we pause our Big Game commercial until the actual facts can be established,” said the Jeep spokesperson. “Its message of community and unity is as relevant as ever. As is the message that drinking and driving can never be condoned,” the spokesperson added.
