Former teen heartthrob and star of The Partridge Family, David Cassidy was arrested this week and charged with a DUI in the state of Florida. The star was recently tapped to compete on the next season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, but will The Donald do as he has in the past and fire Cassidy for his off-screen antics?
On the same day that his half-brother Shaun Cassidy appeared on a Teen Heartthrob episode of The Oprah Winfrey show, David Cassidy was busy in the state of Florida–getting arrested.
Police stopped Cassidy on Wednesday night after they spotted him weaving in his Mercedes, nearly causing an accident. Cassidy reportedly told police he had a glass of wine at lunch and then took a painkiller. But breathalyzer readings of 0.139 and 0.141, and the half-empty (or half-full, however you look at it) bottle of bourbon found during a search of the vehicle, didn’t help his case. He was then arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.
How will this change things for the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice?
Donald Trump has a pretty solid history of giving celebs the boot for things that they’ve done off-screen–especially when drugs and alcohol are involved. Both Khloe Kardashian and Dennis Rodman were previously fired by The Donald upon reports of their trouble with alcohol and/or drugs, so will the same happen to David Cassidy?
If so, will he pull a “Rodman” and show up on a new season of Celebrity Rehab?
Other stars slated to appear on the next Celebrity Apprentice include Star Jones, NeNe Leakes, Meatloaf, Marlee Matlin, and MarkÂ McGrath.
