ET previously reported that Stamos was arrested and cited for driving under the influence on June 12, after the Beverly Hills Police Department received numerous calls reporting a suspicious DUI driver  near Canon Drive and Brighton Way.

The police said that they stopped the 52-year-old actor and transported him to a local hospital for further observation. He was arrested after it was determined he was in fact under the influence.

A month later, ET learned that the 52-year-old actor was in rehab for substance abuse after he pulled out of an Emmys Nominations co-hosting gig.
