John Stamos checks into rehab

Actor John Stamos has reportedly checked into rehab for substance abuse, one month after his arrest for drink-driving.

The Full House star was arrested in California on 12 June (15) and was taken to a hospital by officers from the Beverly Hills Police Department who suspected a "possible medical condition".


An investigation later found that Stamos was allegedly driving under the influence, and he was ordered to appear in court on 11 September (15).


The actor is now seeking treatment for substance abuse issues in a residential program, according to UsWeekly.


Stamos was due to present at the Emmy Awards on Thursday (16July15) but has pulled out, Variety.com reports. He has been replaced by So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley, who will present an award alongside Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba.
