Anyone who grew up during the 1970s decade will immediately recognize his name: David Cassidy. The former star of The Partridge Family and also a teen romance and pseudo sex idol to millions of women all over the world, was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. As a result of the arrest, Cassidy was forced to spent nine hours in prison, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. Nine hours locked away from the world, unable to leave, held hostage – a danger to the world around him – all this from a former TV star and singer. It would be surreal if it were not commonplace amongst the Hollywood celebrity culture. Cassidy also had to post a three hundred and fifty dollar bail fee, reported a New York Criminal Lawyer.
Cassidy for his part steadfastly denies that he was intoxicated while driving. According to Cassidy the heart throb had a single glass of wine at lunch and had taken a hydrocodone pill a few hours later (hydrocodone is a narcotic painkiller and mixing it with alcohol is generally ill advised). Police countered Cassidy’s assertions by claiming to have a found a half drunk bottle of bourbon in the star’s backseat, said a New York Criminal Lawyer.
Cassidy said he would never put someone in danger and was only driving because he had to attend a funeral, said a New York Criminal Lawyer. Cassidy lives in Florida with his longtime wife.
