BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Actor John Stamos has been arrested and cited with driving under the influence in Beverly Hills.

Beverly Hills police say they received calls around 7:45 p.m. Friday reporting a possible drunken driver. Police later stopped Stamos, who was the only person in the vehicle.

Police say 51-year-old Stamos was taken to a hospital because of a possible medical condition. There police say it was determined he had been driving under influence, and he was arrested. Police cited him with DUI and released him to the care of the hospital.

A message to his publicist for comment was not immediately returned.

Stamos starred in “Full House,” which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995. He will produce and appear in a 13-episode reboot of the sitcom for Netflix scheduled to debut next year.
