Bruce Springsteen has had his drunk-driving charges dropped earlier this week after it was revealed he was actually under the blood-alcohol legal limit. 

The musician famously known as "The Boss" was arrested and charged with reckless driving, consuming alcohol in an enclosed area, as well as drunk-driving. 

Blood tests showed Springsteen was in fact under the limit, which resulted in the drunk-driving charges being dropped, however, the remaining charges are still standing. 

During the hearing, Springsteen pleaded guilty to the third charge of consuming alcohol in a closed area. Judge Mautone imposed a $500 fine on Springsteen for the charge, citing the rock star’s mostly clean driving record and lack of previous criminal convictions.

“I think I can pay that immediately, your honour,” Springsteen said when Judge Mautone asked when he would pay the fine.

Bruce Springsteen had also featured in a Jeep automobile commercial which was paused as a result of the charges.

“As we stated previously, we paused the commercial until the facts were established. Now, that the matter has been resolved, we are unpausing the film,” a Jeep spokeswoman said Wednesday.
