SCHODACK, N.Y. - The Schodack Police Department says they have arrested former teen idol David Cassidy for felony driving while intoxicated early Wednesday morning.

Schodack Police Officer Tom Jones was conducting a Stop-DWI enforcement detail when he stopped Cassidy, 63, of Fort Lauderdale, on Columbia Turnpike near Miller Road around 2 a.m. Wednesday. 

Cassidy had a BAC of .10 percent and has been charged with Felony DWI and Failure to Dim Headlights. He was arraigned in the town of Schodack Justice Court and taken to Rensselaer County Jail where he posted $2,500 bail Wednesday morning.

The Chief of Police Bernhard Peter says Officer Jones was too young to know who Cassidy is. He says Cassidy was driving a rental car, visiting friends with his fiancé, and his fiancé wasn't drunk so she drove away with car after his arrest.

The Police Chief says Cassidy "cooperated and was a gentleman."

Cassidy is best known for his role as the character of Keith Partridge in the 1970s musical/sitcom The Partridge Family. He is known for frequenting the Saratoga Race Course each summer.

Cassidy was previously arrested for DUI in Florida in 2010, making this recent arrest a felony charge.

He is scheduled to return to town court in September.

They just said that on the news they were like "seriously you cant make this up!" yeah it was pretty funny! i had no idea that cassidy would be over here. But then again, a ton of famous people go to the track so I guess that makes sense.

 It seems to me a lot of guys who are super cute when they are young turn out looking awful as they get older.  Or maybe it's my perception.

I made the same observation.  It hardly looks like the David Cassidy of the 70's. So sad.   Also sad that he has turned to alcohol which doesn't help his looks either.  I do see the humor in Officer Tom Jones arresting David Cassidy.  I wonder what Shirley Jones (David's step mom) had to say about this.

I'm glad it's wasn't just me, lol.  

Yeah, alcohol will make a mess of one's looks, no doubt.

I giggled when I read that, but wow, I hadn't even thought about Shirley Jones!
