Actor Vince Vaughn was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and resisting arrest according to reports by the Daily Mail. Known for movies such as The Break-Up, Wedding Crashers and Couples Retreat Vaughn is also one of Hollywood’s most outspoken Republicans and public supporters of President Trump. This has caused some to question whether Vaughn was singled out for more than his driving. According to reports, Vince Vaughn and a passenger were stopped at a California checkpoint near Hermosa Beach at approximately 12:30 am, Sunday morning, June 10, 2018. The Manhattan Beach Police Department described Vaughn and his passenger as uncooperative and refusing to exit the vehicle. Vaughn and the passenger were both arrested and booked into jail at approximately 1 a.m.
The Manhattan Beach Police Department shared a status update regarding Vince Vaughn’s arrest on their official Facebook page. It reads as follows.
“The purpose of the checkpoint is to promote public safety, increase the awareness of the dangers associated with drinking and driving, and deter impaired driving and unlicensed driving.”
The Manhattan Beach Police Department previously announced the planned checkpoint. This has caused some to think there is a conspiracy behind Vaughn’s early morning arrest.
Though Vaughn’s passenger’s name has yet to be publicly released, reports say that he was arrested for public intoxication.
