Actor John Stamos was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Friday night, police confirmed to NBC News.

Police responding to multiple 911 calls about an erratic driver near South Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California, stopped the vehicle and found the "Full House" actor at the wheel.

Police suspected Stamos was experiencing a possible medical condition, and the actor was transported to a local hospital where it was determined he was under the influence, Beverly Hills Police said. Stamos was placed under arrest at the hospital and charged with DUI. He was released into the care of the hospital and not taken to jail, police said.

Stamos expressed thanks to the Beverley Hills Police Department and Cedars Sinai Medical Center in a tweet Saturday afternoon.

Stamos is due to appear at the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse in September.
