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!"

What a bunch of tards for not getting a taxi , asking their friends to drive them home or hiring a driver for their night's folly.

They make enough money to take care of their transportation home when they get loaded.

Driving under the influence is stupid. Everyone knows this is stupid so why are celebs pretending that they are above the rest of us and driving drunk.

I am sick and tired of seeing celebs getting arrested for something that is easy to prevent.

There is no excuse, none what so ever.

whoever drives drunk need to go to jail without bail. Make them stay there for a year. Then and only then I think they will begin to learn.

TMZ is now resorting to "The Smoking Gun" for stories, and old news at that!

Most of the people the reported stories are has beens, or people I've never heard of.

The TMZ TV show is a disaster!
I dont need a crystal ball to see the show getting cancelled, and if they dont come up with current interesting news (that dosent involve innocent children), the website will be right behind the show.

I often wonder where the $$$$$$$ comes from to reconstruct our CALIFORNIA highways ! Our state taxes haven't been raised in a while.

As a taxpayer in the state of California I thank all those men and women who get caught drinking under the influence of stupidity !

How many times have we drank the relatively small amount of alcohol it takes to reach a blood/alcohol level of 0.08? Does that degree of intoxication cause the drinker to be a greater danger than someone driving while fatigued? We are fast becoming a nation of zero tolerance in many areas of personal freedom that have no adverse impact on others.

Soap Stars are close to real "actors" as Porn Stars are....actually Porn Stars are probably a little bit closer

TMZ,
1- James Brown paved the road for major superstars, thus nicknamed "The Godfather of Soul". He was a brilliant innovating entertainer.
What innovating contributions can TMZ take credit for?

2- Why not show us some TMZ staff mug shots? I'm sure plenty employed have skeletons, or do you all sit around polishing your halos?

Have some goodamn respect for the dead and STOP mocking James Brown. He created rock n roll and encouraged Black pride at a crucial time in history. He deserves reverence not redicule...PS: Harvy Levin is a collosal mess and his only claim to fame comes from digging in the trash of celebrities and exxagerating the "truth". Oh yeah and let's not forget his forgetable perfomance on the People's Court.LOL.....I question this man's motivation. What a loser.

Granny and Kelly are right. Kanan was a vet on General Hospital. He played AJ Quartermain for several years. He was fired due to his alcohol problems. He went through rehab and has seemed fine since. He is on another soap now.

I've always liked Sean. Just don't drink and drive!
