David Cassidy Arrested For Drink Driving

David Cassidy was arrested early Wednesday morning outside of Albany, NY for driving while intoxicated.

Shodack town police officer Tom Jones was part of a DWI checkpoint when Cassidy was pulled over. According to reports, when Jones introduced himself to Cassidy, David said “What’s new, pussycat?”

After being asked to pull to the side of the road by the officer, he was given a DWI test including a breathalyzer which registered a blood alcohol level of .10.  .08 is the legal limit in the state.

Cassidy was taken to the Rensselear County Jail where he was charged with felony DUI, necessitated by a prior conviction from 2011 in the state of Florida. He was released after paying a $2,500 bail.

The singer is a full time resident of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, but spends part of the summer in the Saratoga Springs area of New York where he frequents the Saratoga Race Course.

Cassidy is due back in court on September 4.
