Say hello to a DUI.
TMZ.com is reporting that actor Angel Salazar—the guy who played Tony Montana’s (Al Pacino) cocaine-retrieving associate Chi Chi in “Scarface” (1983)—was arrested for DUI in Brooklyn last week.
According to court records, Salazar was behind the wheel of a 1999
Volvo Sedan, which was seen swerving on the road just after midnight on Thursday. The officers who pulled the actor over said Salazar appeared to be drunk, so they conducted a breathalyzer test which showed his blood alcohol level was a .121 (well above the .08 limit).
Salazar was arrested and taken to a nearby jail where he was booked on three counts of DUI.
In an interview with TMZ, the Cuban actor—who is internationally known for saying “Sheck It Out” (check it out)—admitted he had been drinking earlier that night, but said he didn’t think he was too intoxicated to drive.
Salazar says he thought he would get off the hook with the cops after one of them recognized him from "Scarface," and pulled up his photo on his cell phone. But no such luck.
Salazar is currently out on bail and awaiting his court date.
