David Cassidy Arrested on DWI Charges


Partridge Family” star David Cassidy was arrested this week on felony charges of driving while intoxicated.

The former teen idol was pulled over in Schodack, New York, where police were conducting a DWI checkpoint, NBC News reports.

The officers noticed that although it was midnight, Cassidy failed “to dim his oncoming headlights,” which is said to be a sign that a driver is intoxicated.

The 63-year-old actor allegedly blew a .10 percent blood alcohol content after being arrested, after which he posted bail.

Cassidy was reportedly vacationing with his fiancée, who was not intoxicated and took the vehicle after his arrest.

The star previously pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor DUI charge from late 2010, after which he was sentenced to 50 hours of community service and had his license suspended for six months, among other things.
