The "Wedding Crashers" star had a lawyer appear on his behalf in the courtroom here and enter a plea of "no contest" to one count of misdemeanor alcohol-related reckless driving, sources said. He was immediately sentenced to three years probation, the Los Angeles County District Attorney said.

Vaughn was also ordered to complete a three-month alcohol program, pay fines and submit to any alcohol screening tests requested by law enforcement while on probation.

The actor's lawyer was advised that if Vaughn drives under the influence and a person is killed, he could be charged with murder, prosecutors said.

The deal, which dropped the original three charges in the case, means Vaughn won't have a DUI on his record.
