Three Months After Arrest, Vince Vaughn Charged With DUI

Hopefully Vince Vaughn enjoyed his summer, because the easy living may be behind him.

Vaughn was arrested back on June 10, 2018 in Hermosa Beach for misdemeanor driving under the influence (DUI) and disobeying an officer. His male passenger was also arrested for public intoxication. It is unclear to what level Vaughn was disobedient -- perhaps he was trying to resist taking the drunk test, or maybe he was just having fun with the officers.

Turns out his good looks and personality weren't enough to get him off the hook. Though it's been three months, his fun in the sun is over. The star was formally charged earlier this week by the Los Angeles District Attorney. If convicted, Vaughn could face up to a year in jail. Though this is his first DUI, he was arrested for a misdemeanor back in 2001 for a bar room brawl in North Carolina.

Chris Soules, reality TV star from the 19th season of the Bachelor, 10th season of the Bachelorette, Dancing with the Stars, and Worst Cooks in America, has been arrested as a result of a fatal car accident between himself and a 66-year-old farmer, husband, and grandfather, on a tractor in the state of Iowa.

Early reports stated that Soules left the scene of the accident without contacting authorities. However, it was later discovered that he contacted 9-1-1 and even attempted to revive the other driver. However, reports confirm that he did leave the scene of the accident in the vehicle of another person, leaving behind his vehicle.

Former workout guru to the stars and star herself of Bravo's fitness reality shows Work Out and Thintervention, Jackie Warner has talked candidly about her problems with drinking before. "I looked in the mirror one morning and realized that I did not like the person that I had become," she told Bravo last year. "I could no longer hide the fact that MY decisions were causing me unhappiness."

It doesn't look like she'll be any happier following her arrest last weekend, as Warner is now facing assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer charges.

Hillary's Brother-in-Law, Roger Clinton, Out on Bail After DUI Arrest

Hillary Clinton has a lot on her plate right now -- like trying to win the Democratic presidential primary in California -- so she was no doubt hoping to avoid a family scandal. But, as news outlets love to remind us, family scandals are common for the Clintons, and the latest comes from Bill's step-brother who was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Redondo Beach on Sunday night.

While Hillary Clinton campaigns, and Bill does the same on her behalf, Roger Clinton spent Sunday night in jail. His bail, which he has since posted, was set at $15,000 and his first appearance date is reportedly set for September. No doubt the Clintons are hoping that Hillary will win the state before concerning themselves with Roger Cassidy Clinton's fate.

Actor and Pulitzer Prize-winner, Sam Shepard, was recently arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Police were alerted to the actor's alleged drunken driving after restaurant security where Shepard had eaten complained about a possibly intoxicated driver. Security told officers that a man was trying to leave the parking lot, but his emergency brakes were engaged.

Police reportedly caught up to Shepard and pulled him over.
