John Stamos released after arrest
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – Actor John Stamos was home Saturday after being arrested and cited with driving under the influence in Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills police said they received calls around 7:45 p.m. Friday reporting a possible drunken driver. Officers later stopped Stamos, who was the only person in the vehicle.
Stamos, 51, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre because of a possible medical condition, police said. At the hospital it was determined by police that Stamos had been driving under influence, and he was arrested. Police cited him for DUI and released him to the care of the hospital.
Matt Polk, a publicist for Stamos, declined to comment, but he referred The Associated Press to the actor’s Twitter feed.
“Thanks to everyone for their love & support. I’m home & well,” Stamos tweeted late Saturday morning. “Very appreciative of the BHPD & Cedars for their care.”
Stamos starred in Full House, which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995. He will produce and appear in a 13-episode reboot of the sitcom for Netflix scheduled to debut next year.
