As reported by People, Hollywood actor Vince Vaughn was sentenced recently for alcohol related reckless driving.
The charge arose from a June 2018 intercept near Manhattan Beach California.
Mr Vaughn provided a blood alcohol reading of 0.08.
Vince pled no contest through his lawyer at the June 2019 sentence.
Whilst not technically a plea of guilty, no contest pleas are of essentially the same effect, without a formal admission of guilt.
Mr Vaughn was sentenced to 3 years probation, a 3 month alcohol program, along with an unspecified licence disqualification and unspecified fines.
Vince Vaughn is well known from a number of popular movies including Swingers, Anchorman, Starsky & Hutch, Dodgeball and Old School.
In Queensland, readings of 0.099 and below constitute low range drink driving, which for a first time offence carries a licence disqualification range of 1-9 months and in certain circumstances the driver will be eligible to apply for a drink driving work licence, which permits them to continue driving for work purposes during their disqualification period.
With a previous conviction within the last 5 years, which is not suggested is the case with Mr Vaughn, the penalty range, depending upon the previous reading, ranges from 3-18 months if the previous was low or mid range, through to a 6 month to lifetime loss of licence where the previous was a high range offence (a reading of 0.150 or above).
No contest pleas are not applicable to Queensland matters.
