Los Angeles: `Hurt Locker` actor Anthony Mackie was arrested and charged with suspicion of drunk driving last night in New York City.

The 35-year-old actor was pulled over at 1:22am in his Dodge Challenger, initially because of his tinted windows, according to a NYPD public information officer, reported E1 online.

But on further inspection, the officers detected alcohol on Mackie`s breath and spotted his bloodshot eyes.

After Mackie failed field sobriety tests, he was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated or DWI.

The actor`s license was also suspended because he refused to take a blood-alcohol test.

Mackie is known for his roles in `8 Mile`, `Gangster Squad` and most recently opposite Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake in `Runner Runner`. He will next be seen in `Captain America: The Winter Soldier`.
