David Cassidy -- I Did NOT Drive Drunk!

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."

I was a fan for years and went to several concerts. The last concert was in NY and he was terrible to a fan. She brought a shirt from her University and all he did was make fun of where she was from and ridicule the gift she gave him. Well KARMA does happen! He has been rude to fans for years and loyal fans just accept this crazy behavior. The New York concert was the last stop for me. I am not a fan of someone who is rude and crude. He is a drunk and needs to grow up and face his problems. It doesn't matter if he was drunk, sleepy, sad, etc.. He was impaired and he is only worried about himself-He could of killed people. Hope he gets help-serious help! I am no longer a fan but I hope he gets help!

Do any of you really know David? Did the cop who took the sobriety test know David had foot Surgery which would explain the walking and the pain pill. The stuff above his brow is make-up to match his hair that guys who are 60 expected to live down their image of a 20 year old wear. David could not wear his sunglasses in the mug shot, and the make up most likely smudged from crying at the funeral.He brought the bottle tp the funeral and I'm sure put it out for every body and while not leaving his trash behind,not thinking through it in the back seat. Davids record is squeaky Clean without even a ticket. Not many 60 year old men I know can say that.We agree,let him have his day in court!We are all human.
