|Rick Springfield Mug Shot|
Now, this is just sad:
Sources tell us ... Springfield was extremely angry after the deputy said his $200,000, 1963 Corvette Stingray would be towed away. Law enforcement sources tell us, Springfield yelled to the deputy, "If you tow my car I will fucking kill you and your family."
Law enforcement sources tell us ... back at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station, the captain who runs the station asked the deputy, "Did you really feel threatened?" Our sources say some of the deputies at the station felt it was a loaded question, trying to minimize Springfield's statement.
In the end, our sources say there was no mention of the threat in the arrest report -- the report merely says Springfield was "belligerent."
A good lawyer. That's what this poor man needs. A good lawyer. This is yet another leak from the same department that leaked the scandalous information about Mel Gibson in 2006
. Springfield can practically expect to walk now. I doubt very much if this illegal leak will go out there without some sort of legal ramification that goes against the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station.
