Brazilian law states that any person is not obliged to undertake a breathalyser test, but they will be issued with the fine and have their license seized as a result.
The Zero Hora Daily reports that Anderson's representatives denied the allegations that he refused to take the test. The publication also said that he was stopped at the police checkpoint after leaving the home of one of his relatives.
The former Porto player is in his native Brazil whilst he recovers from injury.
