David Cassidy

Arrested For Drunk Driving

Exclusive Details

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.

Linds says to a) blame the black kid; b) blame your assistant; c) swear that you were only in that car to wish "Happy Birthday" to a friend.

David Cassidy was never a very public prick like Bieber is--seemed quite the opposite. I hope it's just a bump in the road for him.

Instead of drinking the old time slut Shirley Jones thinks to get rid of the demons is to join in on one of her orgies.

Dude should seriously consider a therapy that does not get much attention or media time...

A single dose of Psilocybin (magic mushrooms) one x per month can almost elliminate the cravings for alcohol...This needs to be done in the right enviroment ( wind chimes and candles) with a "minder" to make sure the tripper on the shrooms does not do anything dangerous...

This is no joke LCD can do the same thing...And you will never hear that at Passages Malibu.

Weird. This happened maybe 2 miles from my house. Probably at a bar I used to go to regularly.

Sounds like the demons are at the bottom of some bottle and he wont rest till he finds them. He wont rest even if he has to empty every bottle in New York to do it.

It was that large multi-colored bus he was driving that caught the officer's attention.
