Driving drunk? David Cassidy arrested in California

Seventies heart-throb David Cassidy has been arrested in southern California on suspicion of drink-driving.

The California Highway Patrol said 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.

He was arrested after the officer smelled alcohol in the rental car.

The Sheriff's Inmate Information Centre said Cassidy was released on 15,000 US dollars (£9,110) bail and is scheduled to appear in court on February 5.

Cassidy appeared in TV's The Partridge Family from 1970 to 1974 and was a recording star and teen idol.

Cassidy's publicist was not immediately available for comment.
