Actor Mackie charged with drunken driving in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) — Anthony Mackie has been arraigned on two misdemeanor counts of drunken driving in New York City.

The 35-year-old actor was arrested in Harlem and was released after appearing in Manhattan Criminal Court on Saturday. His next court date is Dec. 19.

A publicist for "The Adjustment Bureau" co-star had no comment. Mackie also has appeared in the Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," in "Pain & Gain" and numerous other movies.

A criminal complaint charges him with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and while impaired by alcohol. It says Mackie had the smell of alcohol on his breath, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. The complaint says he told an officer he'd had one beer.
