Full House actor John Stamos was arrested last night on suspicion of a DUI in Beverly Hills.On Friday night around 7:45 p.m., Beverly Hills Police responded to "many" calls of a possible drunk driver and pulled over Stamos around the intersection of South Santa Monica Boulevard and Canon Drive. The actor was taken to the hospital, according to the L.A. Times, due to a possible medical issue, but it was later determined he was under the influence.

The actor was cited for a DUI and released into the care of the hospital.

Stamos is best known for playing Uncle Jesse Katsopolis on Full House from 1987 to 1995. A recently announced reboot of the series for Netflix, titled Fuller House, will have the actor reprising his role as the hair-obsessed, Elvis fanatic uncle alongside most of the original cast. Most notably, the Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley, will not be returning.
