David Cassidy

Charged With DUI

2/4/2014 4:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205-david-cassidy-tmz
David Cassidy has just been charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol  ... the L.A. City Attorney's office tells TMZ.

We broke the story ... Cassidy was arrested in L.A. Jan. 10th after cops say he made an illegal right turn. We're told he had alcohol on his breath ... and failed a field sobriety test.

Law enforcement sources tell us he blew a .19 in the field -- more than twice the legal limit --  and refused to submit to more testing back at the police station.

Cassidy has a prior conviction for DUI in FL ... and a DUI arrest in NY.  According to the city attorney, that means he'll serve a mandatory 96 hours in jail if convicted this time ... and could face up to a year behind bars.

Ninety-six hours is not enough. With three DUI's this is a man who is going to continue to drink and drive.

96 hours in celebrity time means "l process you in, wait five minutes and process you out". If he was still at the height of his fame, they would do both simultaneously.

OMG I know this may see a little silly, but can everyone now-as as a show of support towards David and the entire Partridge family (that includes Danny Bonaduce)--put both hands now on their computer screen and start singing "Give Peace A Chance?" John would have wanted that....

It makes you wonder how many other times he was driving while intoxicated and not caught.
