Bruce Springsteen's DWI arrest was 'after drinking one shot of tequila in front of cops'

BRUCE Springsteen was arrested for DWI after doing only one shot of tequila with fans.

The Born To Run singer was booked in November, though news of the incident only broke yesterday.

But it has now been claimed the singer was busted after some fans spotted him on his motorcycle, asked him to pull over for a photo and then offered the 71-year-old a shot of tequila.

“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," a source close to the singer told the NY Post.

Unfortunately for Bruce, the NY Post's source claims he took a swig of the tequila in full view of New Jersey police who promptly swooped in to arrest to Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame legend.

“Park Police saw what happened and they immediately pulled Springsteen over as he drove away,” the source said.

Bruce was cited for driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and consuming alcohol in a closed area, the publication reported.

According to the source, Bruce's blood alcohol content was 0.02 — well New Jersey’s legal limit of .08 at the time time of his arrest.

The icon was reportedly cooperative while he was being arrested and will face a judge in the coming weeks.

This is believed to be the Thunder Road singer's first DWI.

But that fact did not stop Jeep from removing their Superbowl campaign with the singer-songwriter following news of his arrest.

Jeep has pulled their commercial entitled The Middle ft Bruce Springsteen from Youtube, as their page now reads: “Video unavailable. This video is private.”

The car company not only axed the video from the streaming platform, but they also rid their own website and Twitter from the New Jersey native.

The advertisement first aired during the Super Bowl LV game on Sunday, and featured Bruce offering a call-to-action to the American people.

The E Street Band singer asked viewers to "meet in the middle" in order to push aside the conflict and controversy that has divided the country of late.

While driving in a Jeep in middle America, the Tunnel of Love singer urged: "There's hope on the road up ahead."
