Hollywood heartthrob Chris Pine was arrested for a DUI in New Zealand earlier this month.

The actor apparently had too much to drink at a wrap party for his latest film, ‘Z for Zachariah’.

Pine was charged on March 1, 2014 for drunk driving because his blood alcohol concentration was over the legal limit. In New Zealand, like the United States, the legal limit is .08 percent. Pine was stopped at a routine traffic stop that was taking place early in the morning near the town of Methven.

Unfortunately, no other details have been released from the police about the incident. Methven police stated, “Given that the matter is now before the court police will not be releasing any further information.”

Pine was partying at a bar in Methven called Blue Pub. He was celebrating the end of shooting ‘Z for Zachariah’ with his girlfriend, the Icelandic beauty Iris Bjork Johannesdottir.

According to the manager of Blue Pub, Casey Crawford, Pine left the bar around 2:30 AM, but he didn’t appear intoxicated.

“Chris was really good. They were a good crowd, the whole lot of them,” Crawford stated.

However, Crawford did mention that the bar was offering patrons sober drivers to take them home. Why did Pine get behind the wheel?

Pine has been in New Zealand for a while now, filming ‘Z for Zachariah’. The film costars Margot Robbie from ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and Chiwetel Ejiofor from ’12 Years a Slave’.

Representatives for Pine were not available to comment.
