Former teen idol David Cassidy was ordered to enter alcohol rehab for three months on Monday, after pleading no contest to a drunken driving charge in Los Angeles on Monday.

The 63-year-old must also serve five years' probation, pay fines and take part in a nine-month alcohol education program.

Cassidy had twice the legal blood-alcohol level when he was pulled over in Los Angeles in January after making an illegal u-turn.

It was his second DUI arrest in six months and third since 2011. Cassidy's manager says his drinking is the result of stress brought on by a legal dispute regarding profits from his 1970's show the "Partridge Family."
