David Cassidy has been officially charged with driving under the influence (DUI) stemming from a January 10 arrest in L.A. where the singer registered a .19 on the field sobriety test.
TMZ is reporting that L.A. City Attorney's office told them of the official charge although a trial date is yet to be set.
On the evening of January 10, Cassidy was pulled over after making an illegal right turn. The arresting officer said, upon approaching the car, "the odor of an alcoholic beverage was emitting from the vehicle" so the standard sobriety test was administered. The .19 that Cassidy registered is more than two-times the legal limit in California.
The singer was previously arrested for drunk driving in 2010 in Florida and again on August 21 of last year outside of Albany, NY. If he is found guilty in the latest case, he will face a mandatory 96 hours in prison with the possibility of up to one year.
