LOS ANGELES — 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.

Cassidy was arrested last August in the Capital Region on charges of driving while intoxicated as well.

In California, 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.

Cassidy appeared in TV's "The Partridge Family" from 1970 to '74 and was a recording star and teen idol.

A call seeking comment from Cassidy's publicist was not immediately returned.
