David failed two breathalyzer tests after police found a half-empty bottle of bourbon in his car.

Oh no! Gossip Girl star Katie Cassidy‘s father, David Cassidy, once a teen hottie starring on The Partridge Family, was charged with a DUI after being pulled over Nov. 3 for driving drunk in St. Lucie County, Fla.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, the 60-year-old actor was cruising in a white Mercedes Benz when an officer noticed his car swerving all over the road.

After pulling David over, the officer noted that he smelled like alcohol and appeared nervous and confused. He then failed two breathalyzer tests, one measured at .139 and the second at .141, both results of which were higher than .08 legal limit.

David apologized, explaining that he had a glass of wine during lunch and had taken hydrocodone pill at 3:30 p.m.

But a car search said otherwise. The officer found a half empty bottle of bourbon in the back!

David was booked into a South Florida jail and charged with driving under the influence, failure to maintain a single lane and having an open container. He was released on a $350 bail early in the morning of Nov. 4.
