Chris Pine, who plays Captain Kirk in the Star Trek films, was arrested and charged with a DUI in New Zealand earlier this month.

Chris Pine Charged With DUI

Pine, 33, had been leaving a wrap party for Z for Zachariah in the early morning hours of March 1 when New Zealand Police pulled him over. It was found that the actor was driving with a blood-alcohol level over .08, the legal limit, according to a statement by local authorities.

The night before Pine’s arrest, he’d been throwing back a few beers at Methven’s Blue Pub, according to the bar’s manager, Casey Crawford. Crawford revealed that Pine was accompanied by his girlfriend Iris Bjork Johannesdottir and his Z for Zachariah costars Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave).

"Chris was really good. They were a good crowd, the whole lot of them," Crawford told The Press.
