Uh oh, it looks like a little legal trouble is headed David Cassidy’s way, and he better get ready for the judgement day. The Partridge Family star was arrested shortly after midnight today in upstate New York for driving while intoxicated.
The 63-year-old former actor and singer was pulled over and charged with felony DWI and failure to dim headlights, according to the Schodack Police Department, and was arraigned and remanded to a nearby jail before making bail.
But this isn’t the first time the Cassidy family has been in the headlines for alcohol-related incidents. In 2007, Arrow star Katie (David’s daughter) was arrested for underage drinking, when she was 20 years old. The star, who was dating Jesse McCartney at the time, was in a car that was pulled over for “several moving violations.”
According to the police report, cops noticed that Katie Cassidy reeked of alcohol and that her face was "expressionless," they asked for I.D. And, um, Katie gave them a fake one — Taylor Quinn Cole, who had recently guest starred on Supernatural, the show Katie was on at the time. Another strike? She gave a fake birthday, insisting that she was 21 — except that the year she gave was 1984, which would have made her 23… Oh well. Her acting has only improved in the years since.
Unfortunately for David, this is the second he’s gotten in trouble for driving under the influence. In 2010, he was arrested for DUI and driving with an open container, to which he pled no contest. After, he had his driving privileges suspended for six months and was on probation for a year. He is due back in court on September 4.
