(Newser) – Former teen heartthrob David Cassidy was arrested yesterday for allegedly driving under the influence. The Partridge Family star, 60, was pulled over after a cop saw him weaving on the Florida Turnpike, the Palm Beach Post reports. Cassidy said he’d had a glass of wine at lunch and took a hydrocodone; his blood alcohol content was measured at 0.139 and 0.141. Police found a half-empty bottle of bourbon in his car.

Cassidy’s rep says he was tired, not drunk, and says he will fight the charges, TMZ reports. For more, click here.
