Former teen idol David Cassidy takes plea deal in Florida DUI case

February 16, 2011 David Cassidy, Donald Trump

Former "Partridge Family" star David Cassidy will not go to jail for his November DUI arrest in Florida, but will lose his driving privileges for six months.

A plea of no contest will be entered in a Fort Pierce, Fla. courtroom Wednesday, reports TMZ.

The 60-year-old actor, who is set to star in the next installment of Donald Trump's "The Celebrity Apprentice" in March, will also agree to a one-year probation and 50 hours of community service.

Florida Highway Patrol have released the Nov. 3 arrest, which shows a cooperative Cassidy is shown following police instructions during a field sobriety test.

But when the singer is being arrested, Cassidy is heard complaining "as a guy who's supported you guys over the years...," until the trooper interrupts, saying, "It doesn't make a difference who you support." Cassidy responds, "I know ... it doesn't."

The former teen idol was arrested after a Florida Highway Patrol trooper reported seeing Cassidy's white 2008 Mercedes weaving in southbound traffic on the Florida Turnpike.

Cassidy is best known for his role as Keith Partridge on the 1970s television show "The Patridge Family."
