John Stamos takes plea deal in DUI, won’t do jail time
John Stamos has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor DUI, avoiding jail time but taking on probation and some drug counseling.
The “Grandfathered” actor, who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Beverly Hills in June, will be on informal probation for three years and has been ordered to do an AA meeting a week for 52 weeks, plus two hours of drug counseling.
Stamos, who according to TMZ was under the influence of GHB at the time of his arrest, was hospitalized the night he was taken into custody and went into rehab shortly thereafter. The criminal complaint did not mention the substance involved, L.A. Now reported at the time.
After rehab, the former “ER” hunk, 52, was singing the praises of his time in rehab.
