LOS ANGELES -- Rick Springfield has pleaded no contest to reckless driving and will serve probation to end a drunken driving case filed after his arrest last year.
The rocker's attorney Philip Cohen entered the plea to a misdemeanour charge of reckless driving "with driving under the influence conditions" in Malibu. The singer initially faced drunken driving charges, but the revised charge doesn't include any allegation of alcohol impairment.
The Jessie's Girl singer was arrested in May 2011 after deputies spotted him speeding in his 1963 Corvette.
District attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says Springfield will be on informal probation for three years and is required to attend a three-month alcohol education program.
