    You know he may wish that he had Jessie's girl, but Rick Springfield got probation!

    The singer avoided six months of jail time by agreeing to a plea deal for a drinking and driving charge. He was arrested in L.A. in 2011 on two counts of DUI. Tsk tsk, Richard.

    The 'Field initially pleaded not guilty, but has swapped that plea out for no contest to reckless driving. The authorities ditched the other charges.

    Probation is for three years and he will attend a two-month traffic school, according to TMZ.

    Don't drink and drive, celebs. Set a GOOD example, please.

    Do you wish that you had Jessie's girl?
