Star Trek and Jack Ryan star Chris Pine was recently arrested for drunk driving in New Zealand, where he was shooting the upcoming science fiction film Z for Zachariah.
According to local sources, the 33-year-old actor was stopped for driving under the influence in the early hours of March 1, after attending a wrap party at a bar in the New Zealand town of Methven.
“Chris Pine arrived here and had his girlfriend [Iris Bjork Johannesdottir] with him and he spent most of his time with her — she flew in that day someone told me,” bar manager Casey Crawford told the The New Zealand Herald.
The bar manager added that there were designated drivers at the party and he was surprised to hear that Chris had driven himself.
“Pine was drinking beer and did not appear intoxicated before leaving at about 2:30 a.m.,” said Casey, adding that the actor had obliged locals’s requests who wanted their photo taken with him. “He looked like he just wanted to spend time with his partner.”
According to sources, Chris is scheduled to attend Ashburton district court on Monday (March 17) for the drunk driving charge.
