David Cassidy arrested for DUI for third time since 2010
Today.com ^ | January 11, 2014 | Kevin Murphy

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?

It was the father who died in a fire; I think it was from smoking in bed. David is Shirley Jones’ stepson.

I used to think Susan Dey was really pretty.

Unfortunately, like just about every actor or actress they seem to have feet of clay. I recall reading where she said she was having regular sex with one of the show’s directors or whatever his position.

She was probably under age too.

We all had crushes on David Cassidy. Soooo cute! Susan Dey was a really cute girl too. That’s too bad if that’s true, but who would be surprised. What a dirt bag director.

Surely you are as young and pretty as you were FIFTY years ago. It never ceases to amaze me how even “conservatives” (my friends) who are now bald, fat, flawed, divorced, and otherwise wrinkled take their anger at “time” out on their old stars. Look in a mirror.

This is the way it happened to me too. You get away with it for years, then you get your first one, and after that they start coming faster and faster.

Then you wake up and quit.

Golux, I was merely saying that David Cassidy is destroying his own life. I remember a man once talking about how old everyone was that was mentioned, but most were actually younger than this man even if only a year or two. This must be the theme you are addressing. But yes, I don’t look like I did fifty years ago for sure!

I understand that he was quite the wild child. Currently he’s part of a team on a classic rock radio show in seattle.

His dad may also have had some serious mental health problems as well.

I was shocked to read that Jack Cassidy died at 49.

It happens to people. You lose your looks.

Wake up one day and your hair doesn’t look right. Each day, it gets worse. You get wrinkles. Your hairline recedes.

When you consider how much this guy changed, he’s been remarkably sane. And let’s not forget we are comparing David Cassidy at age 33 to David Cassidy age 63!!!

I was absolutely head over heels in love with a little cutie from Texas. She seemed to feel the same way and we discussed marriage but never did say for sure.

After she went home and to her college, SWTS she wrote me every day, then they got slower and slower. Finally she told me she was marrying the guy she dropped as her fiance when she began to date me. I am sure if we had stayed in the same location that we would have been married and she would have been a great wife.

Recently I looked her up on facebook and she has really aged. On the other hand her husband actually looks better than he did when they were dating. They are both in their early 60s.

They had five children but lost one in some kind of accident at age 21. I know that had to tear them up.

My crush was his brother, Shaun. I remember begging my Mom for a pink satin zipup jacket with huge Shaun Cassidy face/autograph on the back.
Still have the picture of me wearing it at the skating rink for my 8th or 9th bday party..hilarious!

Those were the TV years, pre-drugs and booze. From what I briefly read, it was all downhill after the TV show ended. No mentions of other run-ins, rehab or violence. Just a lot of booze and 2 DUIs. The years haven’t been kind. Top pic he looks like a trashed-out meth head.
