Anthony Mackie has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, PEOPLE confirms.

The Hurt Locker actor, 35, was booked Saturday morning in New York City after he refused to take a Breathalyzer test, an NYPD spokeswoman said.

Officers initially pulled over Mackie's red 2010 Dodge Charger at 1:22 a.m. in East Harlem for tinted windows, which is illegal in the state. Police say that they smelled alcohol on Mackie's breath, and that the actor had bloodshot eyes.

Mackie refused to take a Breathalyzer test, and he was subsequently arrested on a charge of DWI and booked at the 28th Precinct in Central Harlem.

(TMZ, which claims that Mackie failed several field sobriety tests, was the first to report on the arrest.)

Mackie, whom PEOPLE singled out as one of the Sexiest Men Alive in 2011, appeared in several films this year, including Gangster Squad and Runner Runner. He will next be seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, due out in 2014.
