Hollywood actor Chris Pine, known for playing Captain Kirk in the Star Trek movies, pleaded guilty Monday in a New Zealand court to a charge of drunken driving.
The 33-year-old American was fined $93 New Zealand dollars ($79) and had his New Zealand driver’s license suspended for six months during a hearing at the Ashburton District Court.
Police pulled over Pine early on March 1 after he’d attended a party to mark the end of filming on the movie Z for Zachariah, which is due for release next year. Fairfax Media reported that Pine told police he’d consumed four vodka drinks.
Police told the court that a blood test found Pine’s blood-alcohol level was 0.11 percent, which is over New Zealand’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.
