David Cassidy, the 63-year-old former teen-celebrity who starred in “The Partridge Family” television series some 40 years ago, was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated, according to NBC News on Saturday. The incident, which occurred Friday night, is Cassidy’s third such occurrence in the past four years.

The California Highway Patrol said that Cassidy was stopped on a road near the Los Angeles International Airport after making a right-turn-on-red where postage signage disallowed such a move. During the stop, there was the scent of alcohol coming from his vehicle, and an officer subjected Cassidy to a field sobriety test that showed a blood alcohol content level of 0.19 percent. That is over twice the legal limit in California which is 0.08 percent.

Last August 21, Cassidy was charged with driving drunk in Schodack, New York. In that incident, he was stopped for not dimming his headlights before allegedly being found intoxicated. In that incident, Cassidy was allegedly pulled over by an officer named Tom Jones, and in joking reference to singer Tom Jones, Cassidy asked Officer Jones “What’s New Pussy Cat?” – a reference to one of singer Tom Jones big hits. Cassidy found out that what was new was his elevated blood alcohol level was at 0.10 which is above New York’s 0.08 limit. Also, he was arrested and convicted in Florida four years ago for driving drunk in 2010.

Besides being a former television actor on “The Partridge Family,” as a member of that group and as a solo recording artist, he had a successful singing career with such popular songs as “I Think I Love You.”
