David Cassidy arrested for drunk driving ... for the third time

Maybe the third time will be the charm—for David Cassidy to get help. The 63-year old “Partridge Family” alum has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to a January 11 report from CNN.

Cassidy allegedly blew twice the legal level – a whopping .19% -- on an alcohol test administered by a California Highway Patrol officer after he was stopped for making an illegal right turn near the Los Angeles International Airport. He was released on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on February 5.

Unfortunately for the former teen idol, it’s not the first time he’s been busted for DUI.

Last August, Cassidy failed a sobriety test in New York after registering .10 in a Breathalyzer device when he was stopped at a routine checkpoint. The legal blood alcohol limit is .08 in New York.

And in 2010, he was convicted of driving under the influence test in Florida and was arrested as a first time offender. At the time, his brother Ryan Cassidy told Radar Online he was “shocked and surprised” by the arrest.

“I just spoke with David last week and he was doing fine actually,” Ryan Cassidy said. “I am sure he will be okay though. He did not mention anything wrong, and there were no drinking problems that I know of.”

With three DUIs in three states, Cassidy’s definitely seen better days, but he’s not the only “Partridge Family” alum to get into trouble with alcohol.

Danny Bonaduce, who played his younger brother on the ‘70s sitcom, had a long history of bad boy behavior, before finally cleaning up his act three years ago. On a 2013 episode of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?,” Bonaduce said he credits his third wife, Amy, for his sobriety.

“January 10, 2011 was my last drink,” Bonaduce said. “I couldn’t imagine looking at Amy and cheating on her or lying to her. It would be disgraceful.”
