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.

David looks just like his drunk deceased dad Jack Cassidy.

David looks pickled to the 9's.

You want to drink fine, but stay the fk off the road if you do drink.... I don't want you killing my A$$.

David is actually still a very attractive man for his age. Drunken mugshots are not often very flattering.

How sad, his dad had the same problem with alcohol and he died while intoxicated in a fire. Danny Partridge your good looks have gone to the demon drink.

So sorry to see it happen again. Maybe THIS time will be his bottom. He can dig himself out. He just has to want to. God Bless you David.

Hard to believe based on looking at this pic that he only blew a .10 - he looks completely dazed. Makes me wonder what else was in his system.

Weak man. The guy has children, yet he puts other people's children at risk by driving drunk. Child stars, sheesh. You know why they're all screwed up? Because, Hollywood is full of pedophiles.
