The actor was pulled over by police, according to THR, whilst driving a 2010 Dodge Challenger near Lenox Avenue and West 125th Street. The 35-year-old actor was stopped after police noticed his car had tinted windows, something which is strictly regulated in the state of New York. It was then police officers noticed the smell of alcohol and that Mackie had blood shot eyes, as NYPD spokesperson, Sergeant Carlos Nieves told THR.

Whether or not Mackie took a sobriety test is uncertain. People report the actor refused to take a sobriety test whereas TMZ claims he failed a number of tests. Nevertheless, the Million Dollar Baby actor was apprehended and taken to the 28th precinct where he was charged with DWI. TMZ further claims Mackie will have had his license revoked for failing to undergo a blood alcohol test. Mackie was then transported to the Manhattan Criminal Court Building to await arraignment.
