David Cassidy Arrested in NYC for Drunken Driving

Actor David Cassidy has been arrested for drunken driving in New York.

The Partridge Family star failed a Breathalyzer test after he was pulled over at a police checkpoint on Wednesday, and was arrested and charged with felony DWI and failure to dim his headlights. He posted $2,500 bail and was released.

In 2010, Cassidy was arrested for a DUI in Florida. After pleading no contest in 2011, his licence was suspended for six months and he was ordered to serve a year of probation. He also had to attend a traffic school, pay a $500 fine and perform 50 hours of community service.

Cassidy is due back in court in September.
