(TMZ) "Scarface" actor Angel Salazar -- the guy who played Tony Montana's cocaine-retrieving amigo Chi Chi -- was arrested for DUI in Brooklyn last week ... TMZ has learned.

According to court records ... Chi Chi was behind the wheel of a 1999 Volvo Sedan which was seen swerving all over the road just after midnight on Thursday.

When cops approached the Volvo, officers say Chi Chi appeared hammered and reeked of booze.

Chi Chi eventually took a breathalyzer test ... which showed his blood alcohol level was a .121 ... well above the .08 limit. The actor was arrested on the spot and hauled to a nearby jail ... where he was booked on 3 counts of DUI.

TMZ spoke with Chi Chi ... who admitted he had been drinking earlier that night ... but says he simply didn't believe he was too intoxicated to drive.

Chi Chi says he thought he may have gotten off the hook when one of the officers recognized him from the movie ... and pulled up the actor's photo on his cell phone -- but no cigar.

He is currently out on bail and awaiting his court date. more on this story
