NEWSER) – Former teen heartthrob David Cassidy was arrested yesterday for allegedly driving under the influence. The Partridge Family star, 60, was pulled over after a cop saw him weaving on the Florida Turnpike, the Palm Beach Post reports. Cassidy said he’d had a glass of wine at lunch and took a hydrocodone; his blood alcohol content was measured at 0.139 and 0.141. Police found a half-empty bottle of bourbon in his car.
Cassidy’s rep says he was tired, not drunk, and says he will fight the charges, TMZ reports.
Mike’s thoughts; Police immediately suspected Cassidy’s sobriety was an issue because when they asked about the Bourbon bottle in the backseat, Cassidy said it belonged to his manager Reuben Kincaid and his ‘goody goody sister’ Laurie.
