Rick Springfield - Rick Springfield Pleads No Contest To Reckless Driving Charge

Though Rick Springfield has been emulated by country legend Randy Travis in the embarrassing drinking charges this week, the Australian performer is still very much in the grip of his own controversy, having been in court for a charge of driving under the influence after being arrested last year. Travis of course is currently the laughing stock of the country world after he was arrested on a Dwi incident, having been found outside a crashed car stark naked. Springfield hasn't stooped quite so low, but he still faced a nervous court hearing for a charge that was initially a straight out drunk driving charge.
Springfield has pleaded no contest to a revised charge of reckless driving and will serve probation to end a drunken driving case filed after his arrest last year, according to The Press Association. The rocker's attorney Philip Cohen was in court yesterday on behalf of the performer.
The initial incident took place way back in May 2011 after deputies spotted him speeding in his 1963 Corvette on Pacific Coast Highway. District attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison has said that Springfield will be on informal probation for three years and is required to attend a three-month alcohol education program. He's got relatively lightly really, Travis might not receive the same leniency after also threatening officers upon his arrest.
