Actor Vince Vaughn Pleads Not Guilty in Misdemeanor DUI Case


TORRANCE (CNS) - Actor Vince Vaughn pleaded not guilty today to three misdemeanor counts, including DUI, stemming from his arrest in June at a sobriety checkpoint in Manhattan Beach.

Vaughn's attorney entered the plea on behalf of the 48-year-old actor, who was not required to attend the hearing in the Torrance courtroom.

Vaughn is charged with one count each of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, driving with 0.08 percent blood-alcohol content or higher and refusing to comply with a peace officer or to submit to an inspection.

The actor was stopped about 12:40 a.m. June 10 at a checkpoint at Artesia Boulevard and Prospect Avenue in Manhattan Beach, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

Vaughn allegedly refused repeated requests to get out of his vehicle. He was arrested at 1:09 a.m. and released from custody later that day, according to jail records.
