Anthony Mackie has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.

The 'Runner Runner' actor was booked in the early hours of Saturday morning (09.11.13) after he allegedly refused to take a blood-alcohol test.

According to People magazine, the 35-year-old star was initially stopped by police at around 1.30am for driving his 2010 Dodge Charger with tinted windows in East Harlem, New York City, which is illegal in the state.

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, TMZ is reporting.

The gossip website claims he 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.

Anthony, best known for his roles in '8 Mile', 'Hurt Locker' and 'Gangster Squad', will reportedly have his license suspended immediately.

The actor will next appear as The Falcon in the upcoming Marvel movie 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.
