Drunk Rick Springfield Threatened to Kill Arresting Officer's Family


Rick Springfield


Law enforcement sources said the rocker exploded when his expensive car was to be towed but the deputy officer did not include the incident on his report.

Rick Springfield was one of those drunk drivers who couldn't control his words when arrested. The rocker reportedly threatened to kill the deputy officer who stopped him in Malibu on May 1, allegedly yelling "If you tow my car I will f**king kill you and your family."

The unnamed officer pulled him over and ordered Springfield's 1963 Corvette Stingray to be towed away when he blew a 0.08 and a 0.10 on a breathalyzer. That's when Springfield started launching his rant. However, TMZ said there is no such incident noted on the arrest report which merely says Springfield was "belligerent".

In a response to this leaked information from some law enforcement sources, Springfield's rep said, "Someone has leaked information illegally. It's a sad reflection on society today that people in law enforcement who we look up to, pander to the celebrity gossip channels."

Meanwhile, LA County Sheriff's Dept. spokesman Steve Whitmore said, "It is rare when a drunk doesn't say something outlandish to police when they're arrested. I have no idea what went down with this one, I wasn't there, but drunks are notorious for saying stupid, outlandish things to law enforcement all the time. Law enforcement's job is to get them off the streets, because they're drunk."
