Hollywood actor Vince Vaughan has today been charged with driving under the influence, after being pulled over at a DUI checkpoint at Manhattan Beach early Sunday morning. He is said to have fallen foul of a standard checkpoint located at Prospect Avenue and Artesia Boulevard, just outside Los Angeles, where he tested positive for alcohol in his system and was apparently obstructive with arresting officers. He was taken into custody and ultimately charged with driving under the influence and for resisting, delaying or obstructing officers, Sgt Matt Sabosky of Manhattan Beach Police Department confirmed.
Sabosky added that an unidentified male was also travelling with Vaughn and had been arrested in addition, on charges of obstructing officers and public intoxication. Apparently the pair had not been aggressive or violent with officers, but had simply been trying to 'delay the investigation', Sgt. Tim Zins said "There was no officer use of force or anything like that." The Manhattan Beach Police Department have released the 'Dodgeball' star's mugshot to the public, and video footage exists of the arrest that was shot on body cameras but there are no plans to release any clips from that. Vaughn and his friend were arrested just after 1am, booked at 4am and left jail at 7am after posting bond.

This isn't Vaughn's first time on the wrong side of the law, he got into a bar fight in 2001 when filming in North Carolina. Vaughn, Steve Buscemi, and Scott Rosenberg were in the area on location and were said to have got into an argument with another patron, Timothy Fogerty. Fogerty stabbed Buscemi several times in the incident, and was later arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Vaughn was picked up from the station by his wife, Canadian realtor Kyla Weber. The pair have been married for eight years and have two children, daughter Locklyn Kyla Vaughn (born 2010) and son Vernon Lindsay Vaughn (born 2013).
