According to the authorities, Vaughn and his passenger were detained at the checkpoint. The passenger was taken under arrest as well on suspicion of public intoxication and resisting arrest. Both men got into jail after which they posted a bill.

The Manhattan Beach Police Department stated on a Facebook post:

Our ‘Zero Tolerance’ approach to enforcement sends a clear message to those who still don’t heed the warning to designate a sober driver before celebrations begin. Simply put, ‘If you are over the legal limit, you will be arrested.'

Neither the actor nor his representatives commented on the situation as of yet. People reacted on Twitter:

Vaughn, best known for the films, including Wedding Crashers and The Break-Up, is no stranger to being arrested. In 2001, he was under arrest for assault following a bar fight that resulted in fellow actor Steve Buscemi being stabbed in the face, throat, and arm when he intervened in a fight between Vaughn, screenwriter Scott Rosenberg, and another man. The charges were later dropped.

The 48-year-old actor’s recent film is Brawl in Cell Block 99 in which he portrayed a former boxer.
