David Cassidy: ‘Singer’ Charged After Florida Hit and Run

David Cassidy is facing several serious charges after a hit and run accident in Florida-where he tried to hide his license plate and fled the scene!.

On September 9, Cassidy allegedly sideswiped a car while changing lanes on Interstate 595 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. According to England’s Daily Mail, he initially stopped at the scene but it turned out it was only to hide his license plate, at which point he drove away even though his car was damaged and had a flat tire. The man driving the other car was treated by paramedics before being transported to the hospital for further examination.

The Daily Mail goes on to say that police tracked the singer down at Cleveland Clinic in Weston, FL later that day and, when they questioned him on the incident, told the officers that he had exchanged information with the driver of the truck and was at the facility for an unrelated appointment.

David Cassidy was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, making an improper lane change, operating a vehicle with a suspended license and operating a vehicle with an expired registration. He was not tested for alcohol or drugs.

The singer has the potential of receiving 60 days in jail, six months probation and a $500 fine. The chances of him receiving the upper end of that sentence is higher as he has two DUI charges from the past two years, one in upstate New York in 2013 and another in California last year. He has also recently gone through a divorce and a personal bankruptcy.

Two days after the incident, Cassidy made his now famous appearance on British television where he was combative with the hosts who were asking about some personal matters.

David Cassidy is due back in court on October 27.
