LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Singer Rick Springfield has been placed on three years' probation after pleading no contest to reckless driving in Malibu, Calif., last year, officials said.

Springfield, 62, was charged with driving under the influence after police said they detected the smell of alcohol when they pulled him over while he was driving his 1963 Corvette Stingray.

TMZ said he made a plea deal with prosecutors Thursday in which they agreed to drop the charge in exchange for a no-contest plea to reckless driving.

In addition to being placed on probation, the former "General Hospital" star was ordered to attend a two-month traffic program.
