“Scarface” actor Steven Bauer was arrested Monday night in Miami on charges of driving with a suspended license.
Bauer, 52, real name Steven Earnest Echevarria, was stopped in Sweetwater, Fla., after making an illegal left turn.
The “Scarface” actor was originally given a warning, but he was arrested after the officer who pulled him over ran his license and found out Bauer has a 12-year-old open warrant, according to the Associated Press.
Bauer was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail early Tuesday morning, the AP reported. The wire service said it was unclear whether the “Scarface” actor had an attorney.
In “Scarface,” Bauer played Tony Montana’s right-hand man, Manny Ribera. Al Pacino starred as Montana in the 1982 cult film.
Bauer’s career started in the late 1970s bilingual television show, “Que Pasa, U.S.A.?,” where he played Joe Pena.
The “Scarface” actor has had a steady stream of work as of late, according to his IMDB page.
Two films featuring Bauer, “Chavez Cage of Glory” and “The Lookalike,” are currently being filmed, while six other movies and a television show are in pre-production.
Aside from film and television work, Bauer has also lent his voice to video games, including “Hitman: Absolution,” “Call of Duty: Black Ops II”and “Scarface: The World Is Yours.”
Bauer is the second “Scarface” actor to be arrested this year.
In April, Angel Salazar, who played one of Montana’s best friends, was arrested in Brooklyn on drunken driving charges, TMZ reported.
Salazar was booked on DUI charges after he was allegedly observed by officers swerving on a Brooklyn street, the gossip website reported.
Salazar, who played Chi Chi in “Scarface,” allegedly admitted to TMZ that he was drinking before he got behind the wheel, but he didn’t think he had drunk enough to be impaired.
