News of John Stamos' DUI arrest broke months ago, but charges are just being filed this week, and sources close to the actor say he has a defense:

He was using the drug as a fitness supplement. Supposedly.

The former Full House cast member who ages laterally was arrested in June when he was spotted driving erratically in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Authorities say Stamos was so out of it, he had to be taken to the hospital, where testing revealed he was under the influence of GHB.

Another non-narcotic drug was also in his system.

Stamos sources say he was taking the drug to "lean out body mass" as he prepared for his new show, which sounds hokey, but could be true.

The drug is frequently used by bodybuilders for lean muscle, and also to obtain a level of sleep which allows muscles to optimally recover.

Charges will be formally filed against the Grandfathered and Fuller House star this week which should formally outline all of these details.

For what it's worth, Stamos went to rehab almost immediately after his DUI arrest and completed his 30-day live-in treatment successfully.
