'80s rocker Rick Springfield -- the guy who sang "Jessie's Girl" -- was arrested on suspicion of driving drunk in Los Angeles this weekend, TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, the 61-year-old singer was pulled over by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. around 8 PM for a traffic violation. 

When officers approached the vehicle, they noticed the smell of booze and asked Springfield to perform several field sobriety tests.
