David Cassidy

Arrested For Drunk Driving

David Cassidy was just arrested by Tom Jones ... for drunk driving.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Cassidy was in upstate New York early this AM -- outside Albany -- when he was pulled over by OFFICER Jones for driving with his high beams when he wasn't supposed to.

We're told Jones smelled alcohol on Cassidy's breath and administered a field sobriety test, during which Cassidy performed poorly. The singer/actor blew a .1 and was cuffed and taken to jail.

He now faces felony drunk driving because he had a prior DUI in Florida.

Cassidy has been released on $2,500 bail.

His stepmom, Shirley Jones, has said recently David is a troubled man who has demons he's been struggling to conquer.

12:50 PM PT -- According to the police report, Cassidy left his high beams on as he approached the checkpoint (always a tip-off to cops) -- and in addition to the breathalyzer ... he also "failed all" the field sobriety tests Officer Jones put him through.

How come the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult's "HIGHER POWER" failed him?

A REAL "HIGHER POWER" would work 100% of the time...NO MATTER WHAT!

Disturbing and sad to see him like this. I saw Shirley Jones and her husband Marty a couple of weeks ago at a restaurant in Encino and she looked wonderful.

Davids father actor Jack Cassidy was a very bad alcoholic who was very jealous of David and his career. He wanted to have the fame that his son had that alluded him in life. Unfortunately,Jack died in a fire and never made amends with his son. David has been interviewed many times and he's still dealing with those demons,he's felt he's never had his fathers love or respect. All he ever wanted was his dad to tell him he was proud of him but he never got that closure. An intervention is desperately needed here before someone winds up dead!
