MANHATTAN BEACH (CNS) - Actor Vince Vaughn has been charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence after he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in Manhattan Beach earlier this summer, prosecutors announced today.
Vaughn, 48, was charged with one count each of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, driving with .08 percent blood alcohol content or higher and refusing to comply with a peace officer or to submit to an inspection, all misdemeanors.
He is expected to be arraigned Sept. 10 in Department 3 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Torrance Branch.
