FORT PIERCE, FLA. (AP) - Former teen idol David Cassidy will serve a year of probation and have his driving privileges suspended for six months after pleading no contest to driving under the influence on Florida’s Turnpike.

The attorney for the 60-year-old “Partridge Family” star entered the plea at a hearing Wednesday. Cassidy did not have to appear in court because the charge was a misdemeanor and he has no prior record.

Cassidy was arrested on Nov. 3 after a Florida Highway Patrol trooper saw his car weaving near Fort Pierce.

The highway patrol report says Cassidy failed a field sobriety test. Breath tests at the St. Lucie County jail showed his blood-alcohol content at 0.139 and 0.141, levels that are higher than Florida’s legal limit of 0.08.
