John Stamos, best known for his role as Uncle Jessie on Full House, was arrested this past Friday on suspicion of driving under the influence in Beverly Hills, California.
Police in Beverly Hills responded to several calls about an “erratic driver” this past Friday evening.
It was unclear, at the time, whether the actor was suffering from a medical condition or was intoxicated. Police then transported the 51 year-old actor to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. It was later determined that Stamos had been allegedly driving under the influence.
Stamos was then placed under arrest, cited with a California DUI, and released into the hospital’s care.
Variety reports that the actor’s first court date is set for September 11, 2015.
After being released, Stamos tweeted “Thanks to everyone for their love & support. I’m home & well. Very appreciative of the BHPD & Cedars for their care.”
If convicted, Stamos faces informal “summary” probation for three to five years, up to six months in county jail, between $390 to $1,000 plus assessment in fines and fees, a three, six, or nine month court-approved DUI program, and a six month license suspension through the California DMV.
Although, if it is determined that there are no aggravating factors, such as a particularly high blood alcohol content, Stamos is more likely looking at three years of informal probation, $390 plus assessments in fines and fees, a three month DUI program, and a six month license suspension through the California DMV.
