Jeffrey Wright Arrested for DWI

Veteran character actor Jeffrey Wright was arrested in NYC early Saturday morning for DWI ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that cops pulled Wright over in a Toyota Tacoma at around 3:00 AM ET for an unknown traffic violation.

We're told when cops spoke with Wright, they detected an odor of alcohol and administered a field sobriety test. After Wright did poorly on that, he was arrested and booked for DWI.

Wright has appeared in almost too many movies to name, but will next be seen by most of the free world in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
