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 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 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.
