David Cassidy arrested for DUI

Erstwhile teen heartthrob and "Partridge Family" star David Cassidy is vowing to fight DUI charges after he was arrested in Fort Pierce, Fla., on Wednesday night.

Police reportedly pulled Cassidy over after spotting him allegedly drifting in and out of lanes and almost hitting another car. Once stopped, Cassidy admitted he'd had a glass of wine with lunch and had taken hydrocodone (a.k.a. Vicodin) a few hours later. Then, according to a Miami news station report, cops found a half-empty bottle of Woodford Reserve Kentucky bourbon in the car.

According to the same report, "Cassidy registered a .139 and .141 in alcohol breath tests, nearly twice the .08 legal limit in Florida."

Still, Cassidy is denying that he drove drunk.

"He would never jeopardize anyone on the road and he would not have been driving had he not had to go to a funeral," a rep for Cassidy told TMZ. "He's never been arrested in his life before for anything."

And we thought Danny Bonaduce was the sketchiest Partridge.

Wow.

Ref. TMZ and ending with, "And we thought Danny Bonaduce was the sketchiest Partridge."

The Washington Post sure has gone down the shitter.

Wow. I am a humble government worker, but I can read.
As in the blog TITLE is CELEBRITOLOGY. Of course TMZ is referenced. If you bothered to read anything before you ran your mouth you would see brilliant satire, scathing snark, subtle irony, and blatant hilarity among the postings. All you can do is snitty and snide? Hmmmph. Why don't you just go read a news story instead and leave Lizard Island alone, or at least wait until you have something funny to say.
As Nosy would say, Shoo now, go on, shoo shoo.

Now now, Mr. HGW is obviously not from around these parts. And s/he's awfully far up on that high horse. Air's got to be mighty thin up there. Easy to fall on your face from that height, too.

Don't worry Rueben Kincaid will find a way to get him off.

"he would not have been driving had he not had to go to a funeral" That statement tells me he knew he was frakked up.

Damn Funniest Thing I read today...

"Come On MAN!

He was "gittin' bizzy" in that bus if you as me.

If you saw his latest show: Ruby and the Rockets, you would believe he was drunk. You had to be to do that show.

Now, over on the chat, Producer Paul called the lawyers here on this blog, the Celebritology Legal Team. Hmmph. Where have you been Paul? We are on Lizard Island. And it is the Lizard Island Legal Team (LILT).

Enjoyed the hilarious comments (other than HGW). The photo itself is CRAZY and can make you laugh. Look at it again.
