David Cassidy arrested for DUI for third time since 2010

David Cassidy, a former teen idol and star of the 1970s U.S. television series "The Partridge Family," was arrested in California on Friday night on suspicion of drunken driving — his third such arrest since 2010.

Cassidy, 63, was stopped on a road near Los Angeles International Airport after making a right turn on a red light in violation of a posted sign, the California Highway Patrol said in a news release.

After smelling alcohol coming from Cassidy's vehicle, an officer gave him a field sobriety test that showed a blood alcohol content of 0.19 percent, the patrol said. That level is more than twice the 0.08 legal limit for driving in California.

Cassidy was alone in the car, the patrol said.

Cassidy was charged in August with drunken driving in Schodack, N.Y., after initially being stopped for not dimming his headlights, authorities said at the time. He was arrested and convicted for drunken driving in Florida in 2010.

Three times in three years. Three different states. Looks like some jail time ahead for "Keith Partridge".

I liked the show when I was 8 years old but unfortunately David Cassidy grew up into an ugly liberal with a drinking problem.

(Maybe he was singing the song as he was driving drunk!)

Hello, world, here the song that we’re singin’
C’mon get happy!
A whole lot of lovin’ is what we’ll be bringin’
We’ll make you happy!

We had a dream, we’d go travelin’ together,
We’d spread a little lovin’ then we’d keep movin’ on.
Somethin’ always happens whenever we’re together
We get a happy feelin’ when we’re singing a song.

Trav’lin’ along there’s a song that we’re singin’
C’mon get happy!
A Whole lot of lovin’ is what we’ll be bringin’
We’ll make you happy!
We’ll make you happy!
We’ll make you happy!

I don’t wish this problem for anyone, regardless of his politics. IIRC, his dad had the same problem.

Note to David: Get some help!!!

David Cassidy is a good man. He’s been through some issues and he’s gone through a lot, and he’s far from perfect. But he’s the sort of guy who you’d want to be your friend.

Well when you consider he IS Jack Cassidy’s son and the apple never falls too far from the tree.

Wow, isn’t he one of those “classic rockers” who make frequent appearances on FR’s music threads, along with Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, two of the many groups heavily influenced by him?

Once so young, now look so, so old. Poor David; he never knew when he was well off.
