FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) --

Former "Partridge Family" heartthrob David Cassidy has been charged with driving under the influence in Florida.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, Cassidy's car was stopped
around 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3 on the Florida Turnpike for weaving and nearly causing an accident.

The FHP says Cassidy told a trooper that he had had a glass of
wine at lunch and a hydrocodone pill at 3:30 p.m. Troopers reported
finding a half-empty bottle of bourbon in the back seat of the car.

The FHP report states that Cassidy failed a field sobriety test,
and breath tests at the St. Lucie County jail showed his
blood-alcohol content at 0.139 and 0.141, above Florida's legal
limit of 0.08.

Cassidy posted $350 bail and was released from jail early
Thursday.

The 60-year-old actor lives in Fort Lauderdale.
