Full House‘s John Stamos Arrested for DUI, Hospitalized


shutterstock_150240257Actor John Stamos, best known for playing “Uncle Jesse” in the highly successful TV series Full House, was arrested for DUI by Beverly Hills Police on Friday night.

TMZ broke the news late Friday, while Entertainment Weekly and other media outlets confirmed early reports with the Beverly Hills Police Department early Saturday morning.

According to the confirmed reports, Stamos was pulled over at the intersection of Beverly Drive and South Santa Monica Boulevard at 7:45 p.m. Officers were responding to multiple reports of a Silver Mercedes driving erratically through the neighborhood.

The actor appeared inebriated — so much so that officers took him to the closest hospital so that doctors could check him out, while also confirming his condition. Stamos was arrested for DUI and issued a citation soon after. His court date is set for September 11.

TMZ managed to snag a photo of the actor during his arrest:

As of this writing, Stamos remains at the hospital seeking treatment. He hasn’t commented on the matter on any of his social media pages, and his representatives have yet to issue a statement to the press.

UPDATE — June 13, 2015, 1:56 p.m. ET: Stamos took to Twitter to let his fans know that he’s “home & well.” He also thanked his fans, the Beverly Hills Police Department and the hospital staff:
