Former "Partridge Family" Star David Cassidy Pleads Not Guilty To DUI

December 1, 2010 David Cassidy

David Cassidy has pleaded not guilty to DUI on Tuesday. The 60-year-old "Partridge Family" had his plea submitted in writing by his attorney in a Florida courtroom.

On November 3, Cassidy was arrested on suspicion of DUI after he was spotted driving erratically on Florida's Turnpike. He was eventually pulled over by a member of the Florida Highway Patrol. He told cops he drank a glass of wine at lunch and drank a painkiller a few hours before.

His breath tests apparently registered at 0.139 and 0.141, way over the legal limit of .08. A half-empty bottle of bourbon was also allegedly found inside his 2008 white Mercedes.

His rep insisted to TMZ that his blood alcohol content was not properly measured at that time, saying, "He would never jeopardize anyone on the road and he would not have been driving had he not had to go to a funeral… he's never been arrested in his life before for anything."

And on Tuesday morning, Cassidy's lawyer submitted his not guilty plea for him at a Florida courtroom. If convicted, he could face up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine, according to TMZ.
