David Cassidy has apparently been charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol. And the former teen heart throb now faces significant jail time.
Cassidy’s charge stems from his arrest in L.A. on Jan. 10. The 63-year-old was pulled over near Los Angeles International Airport after an officer spotted him making an illegal right turn against a red light. According to TMZ, Cassidy blew 0.19 — more than double the legal limit — and wouldn’t submit to further testing back at the police station.
