Nearly three months after he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and resisting arrest, actor Vince Vaughn now faces three misdemeanor charges, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on Friday, Sept. 7.

The 48-year-old actor was charged with one count each of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, driving with a .08 or higher blood-alcohol content, and refusing to comply with a peace officer or to submit to an inspection, officials said.

Vaughn, known for his roles in films such as “Swingers” and “Wedding Crashers,” is scheduled to make his first court appearance at Torrance Superior Court on Monday, Sept. 10.

Alan Nierob, a spokesman for Vaughn, said there is no further statement relating to the matter.

The actor was stopped just past 12:30 a.m. at a sobriety checkpoint in Manhattan Beach, June 10 and allegedly refused to get out of his vehicle after officers asked him repeatedly to do so, officials said.

He was arrested and posted bail, getting released later that morning.

A passenger in Vaughn’s vehicle was also arrested for public intoxication and resisting, delaying or obstructing police, officials said.

If convicted on all counts, Vaughn faces nearly one year in county jail.
