John Stamos, the actor mostly known for his role as Uncle Jesse on televisions’ Full House, was arrested in Beverly Hills for DUI on June 12.
According to reports, police began receiving phone calls that Friday evening reporting that a driver was possibly operating their vehicle while intoxicated. Beverly Hills police officers responded and initiated a stop on the driver, who turned out to be Stamos.
The 51-year-old actor was transported to a hospital for observation due to a possible medical condition. After medical staff determined Stamos was not suffering with a medical condition but was under the influence of alcohol, the actor was then arrested for DUI.
Stamos was issued a citation and subsequently released into the hospital’s custody. He will answer to his charges on September 11 of this year.
Stamos commented on his arrest on Twitter just a day after his DUI arrest, thanking his supporters as well as the first responders and medical staff who treated him after the incident. “Thanks to everyone for their love and support. I’m home and well. Very appreciative of the BHPD and Cedars for their care.”
