    Former teen heartthrob David Cassidy isn't about to come on and get happy, especially with Florida police. The former Partridge Family singer was arrested for DUI in Fort Pierce, Florida, on Wednesday night after a highway patrolman spotted him weaving in and out of lanes on the highway and nearly hitting other vehicles.

    Cassidy told the officer he'd had a glass of wine at lunch and that he also had prescription medication and hydrocodone in his system, according to the official police report. That is a cocktail that should prevent driving or operating machinery, right?.

    Well, wait. There’s more. When the trooper approached the car, he "could smell a slight odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage come from the defendant's mouth," according to the report. A half-empty bottle of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon was also in the car. The report said Cassidy was unsteady and that he failed multiple sobriety tests.

    However, Cassidy's rep denies the police account, declaring that the actor was not drinking and had only taken a pain pill for his back earlier in the day. The actor, who says he was returning from a funeral at the time of the arrest, plans to fight the DUI charges.

    Do you believe Cassidy's side of the story or the police report?
