BRAND NEW ON E!
David Cassidy was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving early Wednesday morning while driving just outside of Albany, N.Y.
According to TMZ, Officer Tom Jones (yes, let's note the irony) pulled the former teen idol over for driving with his high beams on during an inappropriate time.
After Jones smelled alcohol on Cassidy's breath, he administered a field sobriety test. Cassidy blew a .1, which is over the legal limit, and was arrested and taken to a nearby jail to be booked. A press release from the local police department states that the 63-year-old was released on $2,500 bail shortly after. He is scheduled to return to Town Court on Sept. 4, 2013 at 6 p.m.
And it looks like legal troubles are piling up for the former Partridge Family star. As a result of having a previous DUI arrest in Florida in 2010, the singer is now facing felony drunk driving charges.
In return for his no contest plea for his DUI case years ago, Cassidy was given a reduced sentence of one-year probation and a six-month license suspension.
At the time, he was also ordered to perform 50 hours of community service, pay $500 in fines and attend a mandatory alcohol-education course and a DUI "victim impact panel."
Cassidy was originally busted for weaving across lanes on a state road in the Sunshine State. Per a police report, Cassidy told his arresting officers that he was tired, having popped a hydrocodone tablet earlier that afternoon. Authorities also found a half-empty bottle of bourbon in the vehicle.
