John Stamos Charged With DUI
Stamos, 52, has been charged with one misdemeanor count of driving while under the influence of drugs, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said. If convicted of the charge, Stamos will face up to six months in prison. He will be arraigned on the charge Friday.
On June 12, Stamos, best known for playing Uncle Jesse on Full House, was arrested on suspicion of a DUI. He was pulled over after police received a number of calls about a possible drunken driver, Sgt. David Armour told CNN. After Stamos showed officers his drivers license, they had him transported to a nearby hospital due to the perceived severity of his intoxication.
At the hospital, it was determined that Stamos had been driving under the influence. He was released later that same day.
After getting released, Stamos took to Twitter to reassure fans that he was okay.
“Thanks to everyone for their love & support,” Stamos wrote. “I’m home & well. Very appreciative of the [Beverly Hills Police] & Cedars (Sinai Hospital] for their care.”
