John Stamos was arrested for driving under the influence late Friday night, Variety has confirmed with the Beverly Hills Police Dept.

Following numerous calls to the police department around 7:45 p.m., complaining about an erratic driver in the area of Canon Dr. and S. Santa Monica Blvd., the “Full House” alum was pulled over on Beverly Dr., and identified as Stamos, by his own statement and ID. Stamos was in the vehicle by himself.

Due to a possible medical condition, he was transported to a nearby hospital where subsequent investigation confirmed he was under the influence, police say. There, he was placed under arrest for DUI, issued a citation and released to the care of the hospital.

He is scheduled to appear in court to answer to the charge on Sept. 11, weeks before his new family sitcom “Grandfathered” will premiere on Fox (though no specific date has been set for the fall debut).

Stamos took to Twitter Saturday morning to address the incident, assuring everyone that he was home recovering and expressing his gratitude to the Beverly Hills Police Department and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Stamos will appear in Netflix’s upcoming “Fuller House” sequel in 2016. He is also set to present the 2015 Emmy nominations, alongside “Orange is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba, in L.A. on July 16.

    It looks like he won’t go to court until September. I wonder how much he will pay for his legal team.
