Vaughn refused to get out of his vehicle despite officers’ repeated requests, prosecutors said.

Manhattan Beach police took him into custody shortly after 1 a.m. He was released hours later after posting $5,000 bail, according to jail records.

Vaughn is charged with one count each of driving under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, driving with .08% blood-alcohol content or higher and refusing to comply with a peace officer or to submit to an inspection, according to court records.

If convicted, he faces a maximum of 360 days in county jail. He is expected to be arraigned on Sept. 10 in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Torrance.
