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.
