FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) -- Former "Partridge Family" heartthrob David Cassidy has been charged with driving under the influence in Florida.
   The Florida Highway Patrol says his car was stopped around 6 p.m. Wednesday for weaving and nearly causing an accident.
   Cassidy told a trooper that he had a glass of wine at lunch and a pain pill at 3:30 p.m. Troopers reported finding a half-empty bottle of bourbon in the back seat.
   The FHP says Cassidy failed a field sobriety test and two breath tests. He was released from jail early Thursday.
   His spokeswoman, Jo-Ann Geffen, told TMZ he took a pain pill and was tired from attending a funeral, but insists he was not drunk. She wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press that Cassidy thanked family, friends and fans for their love and support.
