Rick Springfield might have been asking himself "What Kind of Fool Am I?" on Friday after he was arrested for failing to appear in court.

Springfield was taken into custody at his Los Angeles home on Friday after the court issued a warrant for his arrest on Wednesday following his missing a scheduled court date for a previous DUI charge, according to E! News.

Back in May 2011, Springfield was arrested for DUI after police pulled him over for speeding down the Pacific Coast Highway, according to Rolling Stone. Last August, he pleaded no contest to a reckless driving with "DUI conditions" charge and was ordered to attend a three-month alcohol education program.

According to TMZ, the 63-year-old "Jessie's Girl" rocker also threatened to kill the deputy and his family if they towed his 1963 Corvette Stingray during the DUI arrest.
