Seventies heartthrob David Cassidy has been arrested in southern California on suspicion of drunken driving.

The California Highway Patrol says the 63-year-old Cassidy was pulled over on Friday night near Los Angeles International Airport after an officer spotted him making an illegal right turn against a red light.

He was arrested after the officer smelled alcohol in the rental car.

The Sheriff's Inmate Information Centre says Cassidy was released Saturday morning on $US15,000 ($NZ18,070) bail and is scheduled to appear in court on February 5.

Cassidy appeared in TV's The Partridge Family from 1970-1974 and was a recording star and teen idol.

He was arrested in Florida on suspicion of drunk driving back in 2010.
