David Cassidy -- I Did NOT Drive Drunk!

11/4/2010 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Cassidy is adamant that he was NOT hammered on booze when he got behind the wheel in Florida last night ... and says he plans to fight the DUI charges.


David's rep, Jo-Ann Geffen, tells TMZ ... the former teen idol admits he did take a pain pill for his back earlier in the day -- and may have been tired from an early morning funeral he had to attend -- but he definitely wasn't drunk.

Cassidy is also disputing the results of the two breathalyzer tests he took at the time of arrest -- in which he blew a 0.139 and 0.141 -- insisting his true blood alcohol content was not properly measured.

Cassidy's rep tells us the actor is already on the hunt for a lawyer and plans to fight the charges adding, "He would never jeopardize anyone on the road and he would not have been driving had he not had to go to a funeral ... he's never been arrested in his life before for anything."

Ok David. Breathe tests are complete nonsense and inaccurate! Even though they are tested routinely and thoroughly monthly and prior to the start of the test. Good luck with the fight drunk. Next time, spend some money on a cab.

And let me guess, the half empty bottle of bourbon was planted in your car by the cops. Plus, pain medication constitutes as driving under the influence, hence the warning labels about operating heavy machinery. For example, a car. I'm sure he'll get out of it just like all the other celebs.

Just never got caught before now. Following right along in his father's (and daughter's) footsteps. Breathalyzer testing machines have been used and accepted for many years. Loser should have gotten a driver.

Well, if he had burped after drinking, that would have given an inaccurate result. But he says that he didn't drink. He should pray that the cops don't have a dash cam.

I concur with all above. Let's see...a glass of wine, Hydrocodone, a half bottle of bourbon AND you blew a .14 = idiot. Let me specify....DRUNK idiot.

Hmm, very weird. Does this state not do a blood test? Those are not the most reliable either. I wonder how high the results were. If it was close to the limit he could have a good case. Oh well I wish him good luck if he really wasn't drinking.

Some of the great quotes os all time. "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinski", " I did not inhale" and now "The two breathlizers did not measure my blood alcohol properly".

im mom    

I am so sick of these celebrities making excuses for their actions! Ok, so the breathalyzer was lying? And why does he think it's ok to take a painkiller and drive? And who has open bottles of booze in the back of their car? Then they try to make us feel sorry for him and say he was tired because he went to a funeral. No one gives a **** about him anymore anyways. Next he will blame it on a severe allergic reaction and bullying!

If you have to take medication for pain or pretty much anything, face it--you can not drink, should not drink. That's why that little warning label is right there on the bottle...alcohol could intensify the effect...caution when operating dangerous machinery or driving a car, may cause drowsiness.
Still doesn't explain the open bottle of liquor in the car, yeah that's a crime too. Sorry David. Denial looks foolish.

For an alcoholic blowing a 0.141 is nothing so technically he wasn't drunk. I'll agree with him on that, but the law is anything above a .08
