Once again, David Cassidy has found himself on the wrong side of the law.

The Partridge Family star was given a criminal citation and charged with a hit and run after he was involved in a car accident in Florida last month, E! News can confirm.

Neither party involved sustained serious injuries—only minor—and according to police documents, Cassidy fled the scene after he side-swiped a truck on a highway.

Authorities eventually found Cassidy at a local hospital and questioned him about his involvement in the car accident.

According to TMZ, he reportedly told cops that he did in fact exchange information with the truck driver and that he was seeking treatment for an unrelated issue.

Cassidy was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, expired license plate tags, improper lane change and for driving with a suspended license.

Earlier this year, the actor filed for bankruptcy protection amid his ongoing legal woes.

One year earlier, his wife Sue Cassidy filed for divorce after the two had been married for 23 years. Cassidy was in rehab at the time of the filing, , but Sue insisted that was not the reason for the split, which "has been looming for some time."

Prior to the divorce filing, Cassidy had three DUI arrests in just a matter of years. After a Feb 2014 arrest, a judge ordered him to enter alcohol rehab for three months, serve five years' probation, pay fines and take part in a nine-month alcohol education program.
