Los Angeles – Actor Vince Vaughn was arrested in California early Sunday for alleged drunk driving and resisting arrest, local media reported.
Vaughn, best known for comedies such as “Dodgeball” and “Wedding Crashers,” was stopped by police at a DUI checkpoint at Hermosa Beach near Los Angeles, police told broadcaster CNN.
The 48-year-old was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and for resisting arrest. He was later released but the terms of his bail were unknown.
An unidentified male passenger was also arrested for resisting arrest, CNN reported.
Vaughn’s spokesman did not respond to dpa’s request for comment.
In 2001, Vaughn was arrested for assault for taking part in a bar brawl in North Carolina during which actor Steve Buscemi was stabbed. The charges were later dropped.
