Actor Vince Vaughn has pleaded not guilty to DUI charges resulting from an arrest over the summer, The Blast has learned. The 48-year-old was taken into police custody on suspicion of driving under the influence after failing to comply with an officer's orders at a sobriety checkpoint in Manhattan Beach, California back in June.
Previous reports indicate Vaughn and his passenger were repeatedly asked to get out of the vehicle to conduct a sobriety test but resisted. The performer, who was a no-show from Friday's (October 19) arraignment at Torrance Courthouse, had his attorney Blair Berk enter a not guilty plea to all charges on his behalf.
The Wedding Crashers star was charged with three misdemeanors as a result of the incident: driving under the influence, driving with a 0.08 percent blood-alcohol content or higher, and disobeying a peace officer. His passenger was indicted for obstruction and public intoxication.
Vaughn was later released on $5,000 bail following his arrest.
Per the Daily Mail, the judge is still awaiting his blood test results. He is expected to appear in court on December 12 for a pretrial conference.
This is the entertainer's first DUI offense.
If convicted of the three charges he faces up to a year in county jail.
