Another Soap Star Busted for DUI

9/12/2007 11:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean KananFormer "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" star Sean Kanan was busted by LAPD last month on suspicion of DUI.

Kanan, who starred as Ralph Macchio's nemesis in "Karate Kid III," posted $30,000 bail after he was busted during the wee hours of August 18. He was charged with two counts: driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol of .08 or greater.

He is due back in court on September 17 and faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, per count. Since Kanan was convicted of DUI in 1998, a second DUI carries a minimum jail sentence of 96 hours.

A rep for Kanan had no comment.

When called for comment, John Kreese said, "Sweep the leg!"

Yet another celebrity getting busted for drunk driving, and probably another celebrity to walk off with a slap on the wrist. Go ahead, keep endangering your public, what great role models for young people! Sadly one of these days some celebrity is going to get drunk and high and drive, and someone innocent is going to get killed. I guess it's going to have to come to that before these people start realizing they are not above the law. Start sending them to court in states where your "celebrity" status means nothing so that they can be punished like everyone else would be if they did the same. Where the judges and police officers aren't in these peoples' pockets to make sure they don't have to go to jail like the rest of us.

I had such a crush on him when I watched GH in the early ninties. He's still hot!

Oh yeah, I hope this was a wake up call for him.

I believe this guy was fired from GH because he was continuously showing up to the set drunk. I thought he went through rehab and was recovered as he was shortly thereafter picked up by another soap. Sounds like he's slipped again. Hope he gets it together.

TMZ's Caucasoid-racists ride again! Sent another subliminal *Racists shout-out* to Pop Culture ---on the James Brown shot--- like readers can depend on you all to always do huh?

Should've known if you would decide to disrespect the dead here, of course...it would be a Black person.

oh. what a surprise.
