March 25, 2022 – “I had a horrific DUI, which I’m so embarrassed by,” the Grandfathered alum, who played Jesse Katsopolis on both Full House and Fuller House, confessed during a January 2016 appearance on The Howard Stern Show. “I could have hurt somebody. It was really stupid and ignorant of me. I hated myself for that. It was a bad, bad thing.”

He continued: “I really don’t have anything to hide anymore … I lost myself. I lost my sense of discipline, which my dad taught me so well. More and more I was just dipping into that dark place. It was getting darker and darker. It stunted my growth emotionally.” “I was a drunk. Yes. An alcoholic. I’ve been alcohol free since January 1, 2020. When I drank, I was the life of the party. I could make people laugh until they fell down,” the Michigan native wrote in his social media post, alongside a throwback photo where he had blood on his face. “In this picture I was the one who fell down. Not because I was playing hockey or doing the things I love — like chopping wood or doing construction, golfing, fishing or flying airplanes. I was hammered and fell, going up some stairs made of stone.”
