"Partridge Family" star David Cassidy was arrested for driving while intoxicated early Wednesday morning in upstate New York, TMZ has reported.
Schodack Police Officer Tom Jones was conducting a DWI check when he stopped Cassidy early on Aug. 21 outside Albany, according to the Times Union. District Attorney Richard McNally said when the officer introduced himself, the singer said, "What's up, pussycat?" referencing "What's New Pussycat?," a song by singer Tom Jones.
The 63-year-old, who spends part of his summer in the upstate New York region but lives in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .10 percent, the Times Union reported. The legal limit in New York is .08. Cassidy was arrested and charged with felony DWI due to a prior conviction. He was sent to the Rensselaer County Jail and released on $2,500 bail.
The Schodack police chief said he "cooperated and was a gentleman."
