Hollywood actor Chris Pine, known for playing Captain Kirk in the Star Trek movies, has pleaded guilty in a New Zealand court to drunken-driving charges.
The 33-year-old was fined NZ$93 (Dh290) and had his New Zealand driver’s licence suspended for six months during a hearing on Monday 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 said Pine’s blood-alcohol level was 0.11 percent, which is over the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Pine stood silently during the hearing, allowing his lawyer to enter his plea.
