According to various reports published by a variety of outlets including The Hollywood Reporter and CNN, John Stamos was arrested on suspicion of a DUI and given a citation in Beverly Hills on Friday night, after police received reports of a reckless driver. The police reportedly pulled Stamos over at 7:45 p.m., and, after speaking with him, called upon the local fire department to evaluate his condition. The Full House alum was reportedly then transported to a nearby hospital and issued the citation before being left in the facility's care.
As THR reports, Stamos was alone in the vehicle at the time of the incident, and he reportedly immediately identified himself to the arresting officer, Sergeant Max Subin.
