David Cassidy is returning to rehab after being arrested on a DUI charge for the third time in the last four years. After being pulled over for an illegal turn in Los Angeles and blowing a .19, more than double the legal limit, The Partridge Family star was released on $15,000 bond after spending less than seven hours in a California jail. The officer noted that “the odor of an alcoholic beverage was emitting from the vehicle” when he first approached Cassidy.

His publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen, said Cassidy was in Los Angeles to deal with a lawsuit he filed over owed money from various Partridge Family merchandise and claimed that the stress of the case led to his DUI arrest. ”David just completed a stint in rehab and was doing very well in sobriety,” she said. "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.”

Cassidy's troubles with DUI in the past have been well documented. Last August, he was arrested while on vacation with his girlfriend after blowing a .10 in Schodack, NY. In February 2011, he pleaded no contest to a DUI arrest in Florida three months earlier and was sentenced to a year of probation. Cassidy also had his license suspended for six months, attended a DUI school, paid a $500 fine, and completed 50 hours of community service.
