Former teenage heartthrob and television star, David Cassidy, has been picked up again on another charge of drunken driving in Los Angeles on Friday. Cassidy, 63, was pulled over by police when they saw him make an illegal right turn after just exiting off of the 405 Freeway.
When an officer approached Cassidy’s vehicle, he smelled alcohol. The police officer administered a field sobriety tests to Cassidy, which he failed. Officers administered a breath test and Cassidy was recorded to have a .19 BAC, more than twice the legal limit.
Cassidy was arrested for drunken driving, but was released a few hours later. This is a repeat offense for the celebrity. Last year, Cassidy was arrested in New York for DUI and also in Florida for DUI in 2010. Since his latest conviction, Cassidy was placed on probation. With this latest offense that Cassidy will likely face jail time.
