On Friday, June 13th, 2015 John Stamos was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. Most people know Stamos as Uncle Jesse from the hit TV show Full House. In fact, there is a modern version of Full House that will be coming out on Netflix next year and this is not the type of publicity Stamos wants before a premiere of a major TV show. He will also be staring in the Fox TV Show Grandfathered in the near future. Let’s just say this is not the way he wants to be known as these two small screen productions roll out.
It is important to note that the reports do not mention anything related to field sobriety tests. Stamos was pulled over after Los Angeles Police received several calls for erratic driving. Police stopped Stamos around 7:45 pm. They were concerned he might have an underlying medical condition so they escorted him to a local hospital and released him for medical care. At this point we do not know the results of the tests nor if Stamos was truly drunk while driving.
Remember that DUI, DUII and DWI are not limited to drunk driving. DUI stands for driving under the influence. Stamos, or any driver, could be under the influence of prescription drugs, illegal drugs or another substance that inhibits driving. This is going to be a very popular story moving forward as I am positive TMZ, Entertainment Weekly and all the other celebrity websites are all over this. We will have to just see what happens with Uncle Jesse.
