Details About Vince Vaughn's Arrest In California Emerge

Actor Vince Vaughn was arrested Sunday on suspicion of drunk driving after being stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in a Southern California beach town, police said.

Vaughn, 48, was busted early in the morning in Manhattan Beach after failing a field sobriety test that was captured with officers' body cameras, Sgt. Tim Zins said.

Vaughn is best known for roles in comedies like Dodgeball and Wedding Crashers, but has landed more dramatic parts in recent years such as playing a drill sergeant in the Oscar-winning Hacksaw Ridge.

A passenger in Vaughn's car was arrested for public intoxication. Vaughn's vehicle was impounded.

Both men were also cited for delaying an investigation. Police previously described the allegation as "resisting arrest," which falls under the same section of the penal code, Zins said.

"There was no officer use of force or anything like that," Zins added.

Vaughn, a father to seven-year-old daughter Locklyn Kyla and four-year-old son Vernon Lindsay with wife Kyla Weber, chose to submit a blood sample rather than a Breathalyzer to test his blood-alcohol level, Zins said.

The results were not immediately known.

Zins said he couldn't comment more on the arrest until prosecutors review the case and decide whether to file charges.

Alan Nierob, a spokesman for Vaughn, said he had no comment.

The arrest was first reported by TMZ.
