After officially being charged with a DUI yesterday, David Cassidy spoke to “Entertainment Tonight” to give a statement on his condition.

Cassidy was arrested for a DUI near LAX in Los Angeles in January. This was his third such arrest. Cassidy was in the LA area to attend depositions regarding money he believes is owed to him from merchandize from “The Partridge Family.” According to his publicist, Cassidy was very stressed at the time of his arrest and took to alcohol to deal with his emotional state.

During his arrest, Cassidy failed a field sobriety test. He also blew a .19 on a breathalyzer test. That’s over twice the legal limit in the state of California.

If convicted of this current DUI, Cassidy may have to serve 96 hours in jail and he may face up to a year in prison.

Cassidy spoke exclusively to “Entertainment Tonight” yesterday. He stated the following:

“This has been a very difficult time for me battling this deadly disease, like millions of others in our country. I will remain in treatment for as long as necessary and I am getting the best care I can possibly get anywhere. I am working as hard as any human being to live a sober life. I am truly grateful to all of my friends and fans who have sent me thousands of letters and messages in support.”

We certainly support Cassidy as well and hope that this current stint in rehab will help conquer his addiction to alcohol.
