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.
Film wrapped. This is where the real talent of post production comes in.

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.
Pine has yet to comment on his DUI arrest.
Z for Zachariah, directed by Craig Zobel, follows an American teen (Robbie) in the aftermath of nuclear war. The film is due in theaters sometime in 2015.
