A Patridge Family star was engaged in some behavior that was not befitting the role model status he once held. David Cassidy was captured on a police dashboard camera video swerving on State Road 91 last weekend. His Mercedes went onto a shoulder rumble strip and then between the outside lane and a mile marker right before driving over the center lane.
When officers finally pulled him over they immediately smelled alcohol coming from his car. Cassidy claimed to have had just one glass of wine at dinner; however, after a preliminary search, the officers found a bottle of bourbon in the back seat.
The actor was arrested on the charges of driving under the influence, open container, and failure to maintain a single lane. Cassidy was taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
