David Cassidy

Well, Shirley Partridge, would not be proud. “The Partridge Family” star and your mom’s teenage crush David Cassidy was arrested for a DUI… again. This is his third DUI arrest and this could mean a lot of trouble.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is reporting that Cassidy was pulled over near the Los Angeles International Airport after making an illegal right turn at a red light. When the officer approached the vehicle (a rental car, mind you), s/he could smell an odor of alcohol coming from the car.

Cassidy blew a .19 percent on a breathalyzer. That’s more than twice the legal limit!

This is Cassidy’s third DUI arrest which means he could lose his license for a really long time and even spend time behind bars. He was recently arrested around six months ago for a DUI in New York.

Most recently, Jo-Ann Geffen, Cassidy’s publicist, issued a statement to “Entertainment Tonight”, saying that Cassidy is on his way back to rehab.

“David [Cassidy] just completed a stint in rehab and was doing very well in sobriety. He was in Los Angeles to attend depositions by Sony Pictures Television, respondents in a lawsuit filed by Cassidy in 2011 over what he claims are monies long due him from ‘Partridge Family’ merchandize, home video, etc. After attending his and his manager’s depositions, it appears as if the pressure led to a brief relapse. He was on his way to the airport to return to his home in FLorida and to transitional rehabilitation. He plans now to return to rehab in an undisclosed facility.”

We certainly wish him the best!
