John Stamos Pleads No Contest To Misdemeanor DUI

LOS ANGELES ( — Actor John Stamos pleaded no contest Tuesday to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of a drug, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney's officials.

Stamos, 52, was ordered to complete two hours of drug and alcohol addiction-related counseling, attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous sessions and to spend three years on probation, according to Richardo Santiago of the District Attorney's Office.

Stamos did not appear in court Tuesday and his plea was entered by an attorney on his behalf.

The actor was arrested June 12 in Beverly Hills after police stopped his vehicle near Canon Drive and Brighton Way in response to reports from witnesses that he was behaving strangely and driving erratically.

The type of drug was not revealed by authorities.

Stamos, who has appeared on the TV series "General Hospital" and "Full House," currently stars in the TV show "Grandfathered."
