David Cassidy has denied being drunk behind the wheel after being arrested in Florida.

Police described David Cassidy as unsteady on his feet, said he failed an alcohol breath test, and that they found a half empty bottle of bourbon on the back seat of his Mercedes car. Cassidy said he had only drunk a glass of wine at lunchtime and had taken a painkiller for back pain earlier in the day.

The trooper who stopped the Partridge Family star wrote in his report that Cassidy was apologetic, appeared nervous and confused and smelled of alcohol.

According to an arrest report obtained by People, Cassidy allegedly crossed the center divider line, then cut off another driver while attempting to merge onto an exit ramp. He was charged with DUI, failure to maintain a single lane and having an open container.

David Cassidy, who resides in Fort Lauderdale, dried out in St. Lucie County Jail and was released around 3 a.m. today on $350 bail.
