David Cassidy arrested for DUI in St. Lucie County
Former Partridge Family star David Cassidy was arrested for DUI in St. Lucie County Wednesday evening after being spotted weaving back and forth on the Turnpike, TMZ reports. It doesn't hurt that FHP found a half empty bottle of bourbon in his Mercedes, either.
The 60-year-old denies charges that his breath tests measured 0.139 and 0.141, quite a bit over the .08 legal limit, saying that his BAC was never properly measured and all he'd taken was a pain pill for his back. Nonetheless, Cassidy, a Fort Lauderdale resident, got a nine-hour trip to the St. Lucie County jail in Fort Pierce and was released on a $350 bond.
"He would never jeopardize anyone on the road and he would not have been driving had he not had to go to a funeral," rep Jo-Ann Geffen told the site. "He's never been arrested in his life before for anything." We wish we could say the same about his daughter, Gossip Girl's Katie Cassidy, who was arrested for DUI in 2007. She learned it by watching you, all right?!?
