ALEC Baldwin reckons Bruce Springsteen was nabbed by a park ranger for drink driving because the singer is a liberal.

The star got hundreds of reactions to his cheeky tweet, with one unimpressed person replying, “no, he was drunk”.

The singer called for unity in the US in the Jeep ad

Baldwin mused on Twitter: “I wonder if Springsteen’s arrest had anything to do with his politics.”

The Born To Run singer was booked back in November, but news of the incident bizarrely only broke two days ago – prompting Baldwin’s theory.

Springsteen, 71, was arrested for DWI after swigging a shot of tequila in front of police, while speaking with fans.

Baldwin’s tweet suggesting he was nabbed for his political stance prompted a huge reaction from hundreds of fans.

Mike Leibowitz tweeted back to the star: “No, but I’m sure the coverage does.”

John A McCloskey replied: “If you’re doing shots, on your motorcycle, in full view of a cop, you are absolutely asking for it.

“The worst crime you can commit in the eyes of many cops is making them look like chumps.”

Michael Folino tweeted: “Not sure his arrest was [political]. But making the report public was.”

‘Eddie’ told Baldwin that he believed Springsteen’s arrest was deliberately “leaked after the Jeep commercial was aired at Super Bowl because this happened months ago”.

The star’s suggestion prompted hundreds of reactions

Springsteen has in the past publicly bashed Donald Trump, claiming that under his leadership, “we abandoned friends, we befriended dictators, we denied climate science”.

The father-of-three has also spoken out previously about political issues in the US, after he stood in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The inspirational artist called it a course of “tremendous hope” that history “demands”.

Speaking to Rolling Stone last September, he admitted: “White supremacy and white privilege have gone much deeper than I thought they did.”

The rock legend was booked at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, New Jersey.

He was cited for driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area, TMZ reported.

Alec Baldwin thinks the arrest was politically motivated

The icon was reportedly cooperative while being nabbed and will face a judge in the coming weeks.

But it has recently been claimed the singer was busted after some fans spotted him on his motorcycle, asked him to pull over for a photo and then offered him a shot of tequila.

“Bruce stopped, took the pictures, then a fan offered him a shot of liquor, which he took, while sitting on his bike – which was stationary,” a source close to the singer told the NY Post.

Unfortunately for the star, the source claims he took a swig of the tequila in full view of New Jersey police who promptly swooped in to arrest the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame legend.

News of his arrest came after he took part in a two-minute Super Bowl commercial for Jeep – which was his first commercial appearance as well as his first product endorsement.

The singer used the building as a symbol for the country, discussing the country’s tense political climate in a voiceover, saying: “All are more than welcome to come meet here in the middle.”

Jeep removed its Superbowl campaign following word of Springsteen’s arrest, due to the irony of the situation.

The singer became a national – and international – icon following the release of his album Born to Run in 1975.

The beloved star just released his 20th album, Letter To You, one month before his arrest.
