David Cassidy -- Busted for DUI

11/4/2010 10:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Partridge Family" star David Cassidy was arrested in Florida last night on suspicion of  DUI ... after cops found a half empty bottle of bourbon in his 2008 Mercedes.

David Cassidy arrested.
The 60-year-old former teen idol was spotted weaving on and off the road a number of times on Florida's Turnpike around 8:00 PM  ... and was eventually pulled over by a member of the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to cops, Cassidy told the trooper that he'd had a glass of wine around lunch time and popped a hydrocodone painkiller a few hours before the arrest.

In his report, The trooper claims he instructed Cassidy to get out of the car -- and dude was "swaying while standing."  Cassidy took a breath test and blew a 0.139 and 0.141 -- way over the .08 legal limit.

The trooper then searched the car and turned up a half empty bottle of Labrot Graham Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon in the back seat.

We're told Cassidy was taken to a nearby jail and booked for DUI. He was released this morning at 3:22 AM on a $350 bond.

Cassidy's daughter -- "Gossip Girl" actress Katie Cassidy -- was busted for DUI in 2007.

Seems like celebs are getting pulled over a lot lately.
With all your money hire a limo or call a cab.

It's a sad day when you'd rather do Danny than Keith.

I know people hate the cops, but everyone says I had two beers or a glass of wine at lunch. At 8:00p.m., it BAC should have been .000. Blowing that high after his story proves he is a liar too. Oh I know, ask Jane Velez Mitchell its a disease. Send him to a medical facility instead of jail. Maybe he can room with Gary Collins.

I'll be disappointed if that bourbon wasn't at least the most expensive bourbon available. And a 2008 Benz? Kinda paints him a has-been. Hell, even Lindsay Lohan drives a 2011 Maserati and markets her own brand of vodka... of course we all know how much more successful her "career" is than Cassidy's ever was.

I guess if these people were not famous nobody would give a rats ass but since they are famous everyone has something to say. David Cassidy was the first person I ever saw in concert when I was young. I got nothing bad to say about him coz he is JUST LIKE MOST OF YOU! HYPOCRITES! DO NOT sit on your pompass asses and try to say otherwise. I am MORE THAN SURE most of you drink as well, just maybe not gotten pulled over and taken to jail so you think you are above David Cassidy and everyone else and can make fun of them when you most certainly ARE NOT better than the next person! GET REAL PEOPLE!

I still have the albums of David Cassidy and I had pictures of him on the wall at the 70´s when I was a teenager. I saw him on stage here in Stockholm 1975.

He got a DUI! It DOESNT mean he`s an alcoholic!! Geeze, just because someone gets a DUI does not mean they are some daily drunk! Anyone that has a few drinks will fail the breathalizer if gets pulled over and will get a DUI.
