Super producer Rick Rubin may be facing some criminal charges for hanging out on the beach by himself. 

According to local news reports, the Def Jam co-founder is heading to trial, after he was busted hanging out on a beach by himself in Hawaii. 

Under normal circumstances, this would be no big deal and not even worthy of a news story. But authorities on the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i claim he violated strict COVID-19 rules during his solitary trip to the beach. 

Rick Rubin was staying at a local residence when he took the stroll, which violated the island’s strict 14-day quarantine policy for visitors. 

Rubin was out for a walk by himself on Anini Beach in Princeville, when a paparazzi snapped his photo, which eventually landed him in hot water. 

The super-producer, who has crafted hits for everyone from LL Cool J and The Beastie Boys to Adele and Johnny Cash, has a court date set for February 9th, 2021.
