UPDATE: Vince Vaughn is pleading no contest to one misdemeanor count of alcohol-related reckless driving. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office shared that the actor's attorney entered the plea on his behalf. Upon the submission of the plea, the Wedding Crashers star was immediately sentenced to summary probation for three years and is required to complete a three-month alcohol program and pay fines.
