C'mon Chris Pine. You know better than this.
According to ABC News, the Star Trek star has been arrested and charged with a DUI in New Zealand, after he was pulled over on March 1 in the country and found to have a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Pine has reportedly been in the country to shoot the film Z for Zachariah, and had just left the wrap party at Blue Pub in Methven, Canterbury when he was arrested.
As New Zealand-based site Stuff.co.nz reports, the owner of the pub in Methven was "surprised" to find out about Pine's drunk-driving charge, because "[he] seemed fine" when he left the party with his girlfriend, Íris Björk Jóhannesdóttir.
Crawford was on the door, but got to speak to Pine.
Pine was "cruisy" and "well-spoken". He did not appear intoxicated, Crawford said.
"He looked like he just wanted to spend time with his partner. I think she just flew in that day."
Crawford added that the pub had arranged transportation to eliminate any possible drunk-driving scenarios.
Pine is reportedly due to appear in court on Monday to face the charges.
