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.

update_bar
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.

He blew a .1 - really. I understand that he is under the influence but a .1 is two or three glasses of wine in an hour - over dinner. He is hardly out partying.

He's still trying to get over being angry at himself for not banging Susan Dey when she was smoking hot.

Hasn't he done this before? If you're going to get drunk why not stay at home and drink until you fall down, take a taxi or get someone sober to drive? I don't get it.

Considering his father was so drunk he passed out on his couch with a lit cigarette and died in the ensuing fire, David seems to be traveling down a similar path.
