LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rick Springfield has been released from jail after being arrested by sheriff's deputies Sunday night on suspicion of drunken driving. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department says in a news release the rocker was stopped around 8 p.m. after a deputy spotted him speeding in his 1963 Corvette on Pacific Coast Highway.

The department states a test showed Springfield's blood-alcohol content was .10 percent, which is over the .08 limit in which a percent is presumed to be drunk.

The singer was released Monday around 2 a.m. and is due in a courtroom in Malibu for a first appearance on July 5.

A phone message for Springfield's publicist Kim Jackwerth was not immediately returned.
