LOS ANGELES -- Seventies heartthrob David Cassidy has been arrested in Southern California after police say they smelled alcohol on his breath during a traffic stop.

The California Highway Patrol says the 63-year-old Cassidy was pulled over 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, according to police.

The Sheriff's Inmate Information Center says Cassidy was released Saturday morning on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 5.

Cassidy appeared in TV's "The Partridge Family" from 1970 to '74 and was a recording star and teen idol.

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