David Cassidy charged with leaving scene of crash

(AP) -

Former teen idol David Cassidy has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with an expired tag after a crash in Florida last month.

Police say 65-year-old Cassidy sideswiped a truck and then tried to cover his license plate before driving away with a flat tire.

The charges were filed Wednesday.

Authorities said witnesses identified Cassidy as the driver in a photo lineup.

Cassidy's lawyer, Jason Forman, says the police report is riddled with inconsistencies.

He says Cassidy gave police his driver's license and registration before leaving the scene.

A hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 27.

Cassidy, who starred in "The Partridge Family" television show, lives in Fort Lauderdale.

He filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
