More alleged details around Bruce Springsteen and his DWI incident are surfacing including his reported blood-alcohol content and the circumstance around his arrest.

Per Asbury Park Press, a source close to the incident said Springsteen blew a .02, which is a quarter of the legal limit in New Jersey. The outlet notes, “The legal threshold indicating intoxication for driving purposes in New Jersey is .08, which calls into question why Springsteen was even charged with driving while intoxicated, the source said.”

Additionally, The New York Post is reporting a detailed account of the DWI arrest saying a source close to Springsteen said he was driving his motorcycle around when he was spotted by some fans in Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, N.J. The fans asked Springsteen to pull over and take pictures, which he did. The source then said, “Bruce stopped, took the pictures, then a fan offered him a shot of liquor, which he took, while sitting on his bike, which was stationary. Park Police saw what happened and they immediately pulled Springsteen over as he drove away.”

Springsteen has yet to comment publically on the incident and is reportedly scheduled to appear in court in the coming weeks. In the aftermath of the news, however, Jeep pulled its Super Bowl ad featuring Springsteen from its YouTube channel and social media.
