Seventies heartthrob David Cassidy has been arrested in Southern California on suspicion of drunken driving.

The California Highway Patrol said the 63-year-old was pulled over on Friday night 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.

The Sheriff's Inmate Information Centre said Cassidy was released on Saturday morning on bail and is scheduled to appear in court on February 5.

Cassidy appeared in TV's The Partridge Famil" from 1970 to 1974 and was a recording star and teen idol.

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