Sao Paulo - Brazilian police say Manchester United midfielder Anderson refused to take a breathalyser test after being stopped at a police checkpoint.

Authorities told the GloboEsporte.com website that Anderson refused the test early on Friday in the southeastern city of Porto Alegre.

Anderson is allowed by Brazilian law to refuse the breathalyser test, but by doing so he incurred a fine and had his drivers' license temporarily seized. One of his bodyguards had to drive his car.

The Zero Hora daily said Anderson's representatives denied the player refused the test. They said he was stopped at the police checkpoint after leaving the home of one of his relatives.

Anderson, who turns 24 on Friday, is in Brazil while recovering from a right hamstring injury.
