You really wish this stuff were made up but it’s not. In fact it’s all too real. David Cassidy was recently arrested for driving while under the influence. Cassidy was driving in the early AM in upstate New York (Albany) when he was pulled over by officer Tom Jones. Cassidy was pulled over for driving with his high beam lights on when they weren’t supposed to be on.
However upon further investigation, Jones smelled alcohol coming from the singer’s breath and administered a field sobriety test. Cassidy didn’t do so well on the test and subsequently also failed a breathalyzer. He blew a .10 which is above the legal limit. Cassidy was booked and taken to jail. Since Cassidy had a prior DUI in Florida he is now facing a felony charge.
According to TMZ, oddly enough Cassidy has a stepmom named Shirley Jones (no we’re not making that up either) who has publicly said that Cassidy has demons and is a troubled man. Another child actor/singer with adult problems. We wish this were a surprise but it’s all too common. The whole Tom Jones thing is just weird.
