What a scary time.

At least he was trying to get some help!
David Cassidy was arrested for drunk driving on Friday night, which made it his third arrest for this same thing in three different states!
After the news broke, the 63-year-old entertainer’s publicist Jo-Ann Geffen explained the situation to Entertainment Tonight, saying:
“David [Cassidy] 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. He was on his way to the airport to return to his home in Florida and to transitional rehabilitation. He plans now to return to rehab in an undisclosed facility.”
Wow! Those depositions must have been pretty intense!
Thankfully, Cassidy is looking for some help, and not avoiding the issue. Recovery takes time, but we’re rooting for this to be his last rehab stay!
