Best known for her role on Supernatural, PARTRIDGE FAMILY star DAVID CASSIDY’s actress daughter KATIE has been accused
of lying to the police during a recent arrest for underage drinking.
The 20-year-old – whose mother is one-time Happy Days star Sherry Williams –
reportedly lied about her identity to officers in Tucson, Arizona, following
her arrest on 30 October (07), because she was a “Hollywood actress” and news
of her bust “would not look good”.
Cassidy is said to have appeared drunk when quizzed by cops during the
incident. They noted her slurred speech, clumsy movements, and alcohol-scented
breath after the Chevy truck she was traveling in, driven by a 19-year-old
male, was pulled over.
A source tells TheSmokingGun.com that the Click star’s blood alcohol level
was 0.16, twice the legal limit in Arizona.
According to a police report obtained by the website, Cassidy told cops her
name was Taylor Quinn Cole – the name of another actress she knows – and that
she was 21-years-old. She also claimed she lived in Vancouver, Canada, and
didn’t have any identification. Cassidy in fact lives in West Hollywood, Los
When officers asked her date of birth, Cassidy allegedly replied, “4-29-84” –
only to be told that would have made her 23. She then came clean and admitted
she had lied about her identity because she was scared.
Cassidy – who is slated to star as Lucy Ewing in the 2009 film version of hit
TV series Dallas – was arraigned this week (begs12Nov07) and is next due in
court on 18 December (07) to face two misdemeanor charges, including false
reporting to a law enforcement agent.
