David Cassidy Returns to Rehab
His struggle with alcoholism is ongoing and David Cassidy is back in a rehabilitation clinic after a drunk driving conviction on Monday (March 24).
The 63-year-old former teen heartthrob pled no contest to blowing a .19 after being pulled over by a California Highway Patrol officer in January.
Cassidy was arrested twice before for DUI and now he’ll complete a 90-day rehab stint followed by five years on probation and a nine-month booze education class.
Following the arrest, David’s manager explained, "David just completed a stint in rehab and was doing very well in sobriety. He was in Los Angeles to attend depositions by Sony Pictures Television, respondents in a lawsuit filed by Cassidy in 2011 over what he claims are monies long due him from 'Partridge Family' merchandise, home video, etc. After attending his and his manager's depositions, it appears as if the pressure led to a brief relapse."
