David Cassidy

Ordered Into Rehab After DUI Plea

3/24/2014 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

03-24-14-david-cassidy-tmzDavid Cassidy's ass just got spanked by the legal system after pleading no contest to DUI -- the judge ordered him to enroll in a 90-day live-in rehab facility for alcohol abuse.

TMZ broke the story ... Cassidy was busted for DUI in L.A. back in January -- his third DUI arrest since 2010.

In addition to rehab, Cassidy was also sentenced to 60 months probation. He must also complete a 9-month alcohol program.

We were previously told Cassidy had enrolled in rehab last month. It's unclear if the judge will give him credit for his previous stint.

Cassidy had originally faced up to a year in jail -- so he should consider this a victory. Even if his wife still wants to divorce him.+

5:07 PM PT -- Cassidy's rep tells TMZ, the singer had already been enrolled in an inpatient rehab facility at the time of his sentencing today and the judge will be giving him credit for the 102 days he's served. We're told Cassidy will be transitioning into a monitored outpatient program (with a sober coach) early next month. The rep says, "David is very committed to his sobriety."

Hope he gets sober but I have news for him doing the year would have been easier than doing five years probation.

look, I don't care if this guy drinks until his liver screems for intervention, just stay out from behind the wheel of a vehicle, before you kill one of my loved ones, but if you should get behind the wheel drunk, I hope you alone plow into a stone wall at 90 MPH and kill yourself

I'm sure he got caught twice because the police started watching for him. Police are diabolical.

"WHITE FACE' VS. "BLACK FACE". NICK CANNON WAS MAKING A JOKE AND THAT'S OK. BUT WHEN AN ACTUAL WHITE PERSON PUTS ON "BLACK FACE" WHILE WEARING A PRISON UNIFORM SOME BLACK HEADS WILL ROLL UNDERSTANDABLY. THIS PLAYS INTO IDEAS OF THE AGE OLD NEGATIVE STEREOTYPES WHITES HAVE ABOUT BLACKS. ESP., THE ONE THAT SAYS MOST IF NOT ALL BLACKS ARE SINISTER AND/OR CRIMINALS. AND SECONDLY, BLACKS WOULD BE UNDERSTANDABLY OFFENDED BY HER PORTRAYAL BECAUSE OF THE SENSITIVITIES WE HAVE AS A PEOPLE /CULTURE BASED ON THE HISTORY OF THE TWO RACES AND THE OPPRESSION AND RACISM THAT EXIST STILL TODAY. I.E., THE HISTORICAL OPPRESSOR CAN'T TURN AROUND AND MAKE FUN OF THE OPPRESSED, WHILE HE STILL OPPRESSES THE PERSON AND THINK THAT PERSON CAN LAUGH ABOUT IT AND THINK IT'S OK TO LAUGH ABOUT IT!

It's always obvious, whenever you see this guy in an interview, he is still "a Partridge SUPERSTAR in his own mind" and he can't get his head around the fact that he is now just an older man who USED to be a TEEN IDOL and he is NOT a TIGER BEAT ICON any longer and his career is in slow-motion now. He needs psychological help to understand that he and his life have changed and he is mistakenly living on delusions about his status as a "wannabe star" now. He needs help, not a "nostalgia gig."
