SCHODACK, N.Y. (AP) - A lawyer says a New York drunken-driving charge against 1970s teen heartthrob David Cassidy has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor and returned to a town court for resolution.

Cassidy was pulled over in the town of Schodack and charged with driving while intoxicated in August, when he was in upstate New York for a horse racing meet in Saratoga Springs.

The charge was a felony because Cassidy has a 2011 driving-under-the-influence conviction in his home state of Florida.

Attorney Lucas Mihuta says the 63-year-old "Partridge Family" star won't be in Schodack court Wednesday evening because he's in alcohol rehabilitation after a January DWI arrest in Los Angeles. Mihuta says he'll ask the judge for an adjournment while details of a plea deal are completed.
