CALIFORNIA — Actor Vince Vaughn pleaded no contest Friday to reckless driving after he was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in Manhattan Beach last summer.
Vaughn had his plea entered on his behalf by his attorney to one misdemeanor count of alcohol-related reckless driving. He was immediately sentenced to summary probation for three years.
Vaughn was ordered to complete a three-month alcohol program, pay fines, and cannot refuse a preliminary alcohol screening test while on probation if requested by law enforcement. A Watson advisement also was given that states if he drives under the influence and a person is killed, he could be charged with murder.
On June 10, 2018, Vaughn was stopped at a checkpoint at Artesia Boulevard and Prospect Avenue in Manhattan Beach. Vaughn was asked repeatedly to get out of his vehicle but he refused, prosecutors said.
He was eventually detained and arrested.
