    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 Friday 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.

    Cassidy was released Saturday morning on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 5.

    Last year Cassidy was pulled over in New York on suspicion of driving drunk. He also has a 2011 DUI conviction in Florida.
