“The Patridge Family” Star David Cassidy Busted for Drunken Driving
I Think I Love Your Mugshot! Former Partridge Family star David Cassidy was arrested in upstate New York earlier Wednesday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DUI).
The seventies’ answer to Justin Bieber, now 63, was collared just after midnight for felony DWI and failure to dim headlights in the Upstate New York community of Schodack. He was briefly jailed and later released on $2,500 bail.
This isn’t the first time Cassidy has had legal issues related to his driving. In 2010, the singer was arrested in Florida for DUI and driving with an open container.
David was caught with a half-empty bottle of bourbon tucked away in the right backseat floorboard of his vehicle. Cops made the stop after they saw Cassidy’s 2008 Mercedes weaving all over the road.
Cassidy told cops he drank a glass of wine at lunch time and popped a painkiller a few hours before he was stopped, but he insisted he was not under the influence when he got behind the wheel of his whip. He eventually pleaded no contest. His driving privileges were suspended for six months and he was on probation for a year.
Cassidy is due back in court on this latest DUI charge on Sept. 4.
