Actor Anthony Mackie, known for his role in "Brother to Brother", has been arrested on suspicion for drunk driving after he refused to take a blood-alcohol test here.

However, the cops soon began to suspect he might be under the influence of alcohol as he exhibited "bloodshot, watery eyes" and they smelt alcohol on his breath, reports

Mackie failed several sobriety tests on the scene, before being taken to the police station on 28th Precinct in Central Harlem, where he refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test.
