Oh no! First Justin Bieber, and now this: Chris Pine, the 33-year-old Star Trek star, has been arrested in New Zealand for drunk driving.
The New Zealand police report that Chris was pulled over on March 1 after attending a wrap party for Z for Zachariah, the movie Chris was filming there, according to E! Online. Police said in a statement that a 33-year-old American man was charged with driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit, although they did not directly release Chris’s name.
“Given that the matter is now before the court, police will not be releasing any further information,” the statement said.
Reps for the actor haven’t confirmed or denied his arrest, although Casey Crawford, the manager of Methven’s Blue Pub, where the wrap party was held, did confirm that Chris had been drinking with co-stars and girlfriend Iris Bjork Johannesdottir before he left around 2:30 a.m, choosing to drive although transportation was provided.
“Chris was really good,” Casey told newspaper The Press. “They were a good crowd, the whole lot of them.”
Now that the news is out, we expect Chris’s reps will have something to say soon. Stay tuned to Wetpaint Entertainment for an update as soon as we’ve got one.
