John Stamos has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs, stemming for his June arrest in Beverly Hills.
The actor, best known for Full House and ER, is due to appear in court for a hearing on October 16.
John Stamos’ arrest in Los Angeles followed reports of him “allegedly behaving strangely and driving erratically”.
The 52-year-old actor, who is currently working on two TV shows, could face a maximum six-month jail sentence if convicted of the misdemeanor offence.
Any jail time could disrupt work on both his current TV series.
New Fox series Grandfathered, which premiered last month, casts John Stamos in the central role of a middle-aged man who discovers he has a son and infant granddaughter he never knew about.
John Stamos also has a recurring role in Fuller House, the Netflix reboot of sitcom Full House, which is shooting in Hollywood and set to debut on the streaming service in 2016.
Neither Fox nor Netflix made any comment on how the shows might be affected.
A hearing at LA’s Superior Court on October 16, could see a resolution to the case or the setting of a pre-trial hearing, which could mean any jail time for John Stamos is unlikely before the new year.
Beverly Hills police declined to identify the drug John Stamos had allegedly taken before his arrest, nor is it identified in the charging document.
John Stamos, who was taken to hospital at the time of the incident on June 12, checked into rehab following his arrest.
