Rick Springfield was arrested Sunday night for drunk driving.

The '80s "Jessie's Girl" rocker, 61, was pulled over by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. for a traffic violation, PEOPLE has confirmed, and his blood alcohol content was measured at .10, which is .02 over the legal limit.

According to TMZ, which first reported the arrest, Springfield failed sobriety tests issued by officers when they smelled alcohol in his vehicle.
