The 35 year old actor Anthony Mackie was arrested for allegedly driving drunk early at 1.30 a.m. on 9th November in New York City after he was pulled over for his tinted windows.
But, soon the officer noticed Mackie’s eyes were bloodshot and claimed that there was the smell of alcohol coming from the “Gangster Squad” actor’s breath.
DUI Lawyer Manhattan Paul D. Petrus, Jr. saysa bout DUI in NYC, “Legally, the original reason the officer stopped you need not be related to driving while intoxicated from alcohol or drugs. In fact, routine stops for broken taillights, out-dated registration or even cracked windshields have been upheld across the country as sufficient cause for officers to detain individuals and then to check symptoms for driving under the influence. In any given case, however, there may be grounds to have the case dismissed by the filing of a motion to suppress the evidence based upon an initial bad stop.” (Ref: The Law Office of Paul D.
