The arrest of David Cassidy:
He was one of the true teen heartthrobs of the 1970's.
His posters were found on the bedroom walls of teenaged girls and his image on the pages of teen magazines.
The son of actor Jack Cassidy and actress Evelyn Ward, he was raised by his maternal grandparents in West Orange, New Jersey because his parents were often on the road performing. He found out they were divorced two years after it happened, because his parents wanted to shield the young boy from the sad news.
Jack remarried, and singer actress Shirley Jones became David's step mom. She was also his co-star in the biggest role of his career (Keith) in ABC-TV's "The Partridge Family."
They were the sanitized TV version of a real life family singing group, The Cowsills. And they had a few hit records of their own, with David signing lead.
Besides the show, he did concerts, although a gate stampede at a 1974 show in London killed a teenaged girl. He quit touring and acting for a while, but later returned to stage and screen, including a role in a 2009 ABC sitcom called "Ruby & the Rockits", created by his half-brother Shaun.
David's first DUI arrest came in Florida in November, 2010.
In August, 2013, the posters gave way to the mugshot at the top of this page. David was arrested in upstate New York for drunken driving. The 65 year old star pleaded guilty in September 2014 to a misdemeanor charge and the now Florida resident was given a $900 fine, suspended driving privileges for six months and a device installed on his car which prevented him from starting the car if he was drunk.
In 2014, one of Cassidy's lawyers said he'd entered alcohol rehab after a drunken driving arrest that year in Los Angeles.
