It's safe to say Jeffrey Wright's weekend didn't get off to the best start.

The 47-year-old Hunger Games: Catching Fire actor was busted for DWAI (driving while ability impaired) in New York City early Saturday morning, E! News has confirmed. 

According to the NYPD, officers pulled Wright over after they saw him driving erratically, and detected an alcohol odor coming from his vehicle.

Wright was arrested after officers conducted a field sobriety test and he failed it.

The thesp, known for his roles in Casino Royale and Angels in America, will play Beetee in the second installment of the Hunger Games franchise.

The film is set to hit theaters Nov. 22.
