David Cassidy Arrested for Third DUI

 Posted on January 14, 2014 in DUI

Things are likely to get more complicated and more serious for former teen idol David Cassidy of The Partridge Family show. He was recently arrested for the third time for DUI.

The 63-year-old actor registered at .19% on an alcohol test after he was stopped by the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles. That is more than twice the legally permissible blood alcohol concentration limit in California. According to officers, they pulled over the actor after they observed him making a right turn on a red light in clear violation of a sign which clearly indicated that no right turns were allowed at the red light. When the officers approached the door, they noticed the smell of alcohol from the car, and arrested him.

Last year, Cassidy was arrested for DUI in New York, after he registered at .10 on a breathalyzer test. The maximum legally permissible blood alcohol concentration level in New York is also .08.

His first DUI arrest occurred in 2010 in Florida where he lives. In February 2011, he entered a no- contest plea for that offence, and was sentenced to one year of probation. He lost his driver's license for a period of six months. As part of that DY conviction, he was fined $500, and was also sentenced to 50 hours of community service and a DUI education program.

However, this time around, the penalties are likely to be significantly more serious. This is his third DUI, and Cassidy is now looking at a much longer jail term, and more serious consequences for his driver's license. For a third time DUI conviction in California, Cassidy could be sentenced to between 3 to 5 years of probation, and a maximum of one year in county jail. He could be fined up to $1,000 in fines, and could lose his California driver's license for a period of three years.
