    Rick Springfield can finally put his DUI bust behind him.

    Rick Springfield Pleads Not Guilty to DUI

    News of Springfield's plea deal comes a year after the singer-actor was busted in May 2011 on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway after a cop noticed his 1963 Corvette accelerating quickly, and smelled alcohol on his breath when he pulled him over.

    The former General Hospital star later pled not guilty to the charges stemming from that arrest.

    Springfield will serve three years probation and is required to attend a three-month alcohol education program.
