Hollywood Star Arrested for DUI
John Stamos, perhaps best known for his roles on “General Hospital” and “Full House,” was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol on June 12. According to reports, Stamos was driving observed to be driving erratically and subsequently pulled over. It was later determined at the hospital that he was under the influence of an intoxicating substance.
On Tuesday of last week, an attorney representing Stamos appeared in court without the actor. The attorney entered a plea of no contest on behalf of Stamos. As a result of the plea, he actor was immediately served with a three year probation sentence. No one is saying exactly what type of substance Stamos was under the influence of.
What is known is that Stamos will soon enter an education program for first-time DUI offenders. The actor will participate in the class for three months. He will also be required to undergo two hours of drug and alcohol addiction counseling, and he will have to prove that he attended at least 52 meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and utilized the 12-step program.
The sentence Stamos received is not unusual for any first-time offender with experienced counsel.
At this time, Stamos is starring in the new Fox show “Grandfathered.” It is not believed that his arrest and no contest plea have had any effect on his continued participation in the television program.
