Actress Lori Loughlin was arrested in Los Angeles Wednesday in the largest college admissions bribery scandal in U.S. history.
The “Full House” star, 54, was taken into custody shortly before 9 a.m. local time, an FBI spokeswoman confirmed.
A source told the Daily News that Loughlin flew in from Vancouver late Tuesday and was allowed to turn herself in for booking at the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles early Wednesday.
She was in Canada filming the Hallmark TV movie “Garage Sale Mystery: Three Little Murders,” according to an online listing of local productions.
Loughlin was expected to appear before a federal magistrate in Los Angeles at 2 p.m. Wednesday for a bond hearing.
Prosecutors allege Loughlin and her fashion designer hubby Mossimo Giannulli paid a total of $500,000 to get their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact they had no competitive rowing experience.
She and Giannulli have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in a flurry of indictments out of Boston that also snared “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman.
Giannulli, 55, was arrested at the couple’s residence Tuesday morning while Loughlin was out of town.
He appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and was released on a $1 million bond secured by the couple’s primary residence.
