David Cassidy’s rep: He wasn’t drunk
Source: Miami Herald — David Cassidy’s rep says the former Partridge Family star plans to fight charges after being arrested for DUI in Florida Wednesday night.
“He would never jeopardize anyone on the road,” Jo-Ann Geffen told TMZ.com. “He’s never been arrested in his life before for anything.”
The 60-year-old former teen idol was busted in St. Lucie County after cops saw his 2008 Mercedes weaving, then found a half-empty bottle of bourbon in his back seat.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol officer’s report, Cassidy admitted to having a glass of wine earlier in the day and taking a pain pill for a bad back. The “swaying” entertainer also said he was tired due to attending an early morning funeral.
He may have a hard time disputing the breath test findings — he blew a 0.139 and 0.141; the legal limit’s .08.
