Rick Springfield Arrested

Updated 2:33 AM ET September 20, 2000

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Rick Springfield spent a night in jail after he was arrested for
alleged spousal assault.

The pop singer and former soap opera star was arrested Monday night at his Malibu home
and booked for investigation of spousal assault, said Sgt. Chuck Stringham of the Los
Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Springfield posted $50,000 bail and left the jail Tuesday.

The 51-year-old entertainer said Tuesday night that he and his wife, Barbara, had an
argument and "a third party called the police."

"We're together and we're going to work it out," he told The Associated Press during a
break from taping an anniversary special for the VH1 channel's "Behind the Music"
program.

Springfield and his wife have been married 18 years and have two sons.

With hits such as "Jessie's Girl," the singer-actor was a teen idol in the 1980s, and
captivated "General Hospital" viewers in his role as Dr. Noah Drake. He was recently on a
nationwide tour with "Karma," his first album in 11 years.

When his music fell off the charts, Springfield returned to acting in such low-profile efforts
as the syndicated TV series "High Tide." He also landed a recurring role on the NBC-TV
comedy "Suddenly Susan."
