Vince Vaughn is facing charges of driving under the influence and failing to comply with police.

American actor Vince Vaughn has been charged with drunken driving.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say the 48-year-old Wedding Crashers actor has been charged with three misdemeanors: driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher and refusing to comply with police.

Authorities say Vaughn repeatedly refused to get out of his car when officers asked him to at a sobriety checkpoint in Manhattan Beach, California, on June 10.

Police say he failed a field sobriety test that was captured on an officer's body camera, and a blood test later showed he was over the legal limit.

Vaughn has not entered a plea. He is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Monday.

His spokesman, Alan Nierob, declined comment.
