David Cassidy Sent Back to Rehab in DUI Case

The erstwhile teen idol, David Cassidy was caught drinking under the influence of alcohol by the police. The breathalyzer showed a level of intoxication that was twice the legal limit. He was arrested on the spot. David’s has been ordered by a judge to enter rehab for three months. He will also be liable to five months of probation and have to pay a few hefty fines. 

Besides all this, Cassidy (who has been caught DUI before too) will have to complete a nine month alcohol rehabilitative program. It will probably go a long way towards sobering him up again. The detox clinic will have him alcohol-free in no time. The singer was facing a stressful time in his life and so he had relapsed into his drinking bouts. But he is determined to give up the bottle for good this time around. 

It was when he made an illegal turn on a red signal in Los Angeles that a police officer got suspicious and started trailing him. When his car was stopped and he got out, the officer could smell the liquor from a mile away. And the breathalyzer test made the obvious a written fact. 

"David just completed a stint in rehab and was doing very well in sobriety," manager Jo-Ann Geffen told CNN . "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."

It’s been half a year since his last DUI arrest. This has become a serious issue by now so he was awarded the maximum reformative punishment as an exemplary measure. David had several things pending. Some of these had to do with his finances and they were causing him to lose sleep. 

Since his economic peace of mind was being destroyed he found refuge in the bottle once again. This of course proved even costlier in the long run. He had already sobered up once in a rehab clinic. So this will be his second time undergoing detox. And hopefully it will be his last.
