Actor John Stamos has been charged with a DUI stemming from his arrest in June in Beverly Hills, where witnesses say he was driving erratically.

The 52-year-old actor, famously known for his role as in Full House, faces one misdemeanor count of driving while under the influence of drugs, according to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office.

While it's not clear what drugs exactly are in question, sources told TMZ that they were GHB and a non-narcotic drug. Sources close to the actor also told TMZ that although GHB is considered a date-rape drug, the actor was apparently using it as a fitness supplement to get lean for his new TV show.

Prosecutors said Stamos was arrested on June 12 near Canon Drive and Brighton Way after bystanders reported to police that they saw the actor driving erratically and acting strangely. Police arrested the actor, and he was then taken to a hospital for an unknown medical condition.

In late June, Stamos checked himself into rehab for substance abuse. He is the star of FOX's Grandfathered, and will be reprising his role as Uncle Jesse in the Netflix reboot of Full House, called Fuller House.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday, and could face a maximum sentence of six months in jail if convicted.

The Beverly Hills Police Department is continuing to investigate the case.
