The government dropped drunken driving and reckless driving charges against Bruce Springsteen on Wednesday stemming from an incident last year.

A spokesperson for the National Park Service confirmed earlier this month that Springsteen was arrested on Nov. 14.

However, officials ruled that the rocker’s blood-alcohol level was so low that it didn’t warrant the charges.

Springsteen still pleaded guilty to a third charge, consuming alcohol in a closed area.

That charge references the Gateway National Recreation Area, better known as Sandy Hook, an Atlantic Ocean peninsula with views of the New York City skyline.

The judge fined him $500 plus $40 in court costs.
