David Cassidy arrested for drunk driving near LAX


Cassidy was pulled over Friday night near Los Angeles International Airport.

Police say he was making an illegal right turn against a red light.

Authorities say when the 63-year-old was taken into custody, the officer smelled alcohol in the rental car.

Cassidy spent the night in jail and was released Saturday morning on $15,000 bail. He's scheduled to appear in court Feb. 5.

This isn't the first drunk driving run-in for Cassidy. He was arrested last August for driving under the influence in upstate New York. He also has a 2001 conviction for driving under the influence in Florida, his current state of residence.
