Just two days after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, former Full House star John Stamos arrived in Toronto late Sunday.
Beverly Hills police received calls Friday night reporting a possible drunk driver. Officers later stopped Stamos, who was alone in his car, and he was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center because of a possible medical condition. Police determined he was intoxicated at the hospital, and he was arrested. The actor is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles court on September 11th. Not cool, Uncle Jesse.
Thanks to everyone for their love & support. I'm home & well. Very appreciative of the BHPD & Cedars for their care.

In Canada, people who “have committed or been convicted of a crime,” including “driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol,” can be deemed inadmissible under immigration law. He tweeted this after clearing Customs at the Pearson International Airport:
Thank you Canadian immigration - you were super cool. HELLO TORONTO

On a more positive note, Stamos is in Toronto this week to shoot scenes for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, which is scheduled to wrap up production in Toronto at the end of this month. He will also be producing and appearing in a 13-episode reboot of Full House for Netflix scheduled to debut in 2016.
