Chris Pine Plead Guilty to DUI In New Zealand

1D0619BC

Ruh roh, Captain Kirk. Apparently Chris was in New Zealand for the filming of Z For Zachariah and was attending the wrap party where he admitted he consumed 4 vodkas, and then got pulled over and arrested for drunk driving.

He did something that no celebrity has ever done before and took responsibility for his actions and plead guilty. That is unheard of. I am shocked, but happily so because he is obviously still human and hasn’t been transformed into a Hollywood robot. Yet.

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.

Pine stood silently during the hearing, allowing his lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist to enter the plea.
According to Fairfax, Gilchrist told the judge that Pine acknowledged he’d made the wrong decision to drive that night. Gilchrist said her client had suffered emotionally and professionally and that the negative publicity had put his acting contracts in jeopardy.
The judge said she accepted Pine was “entirely remorseful,” Fairfax reported.

Before being pulled over by police, Pine had been at the Blue Pub in Methven with his Icelandic girlfriend, Iris Bjork Johannesdottir.
“The pub was closed to the public later in the evening and approximately 80 actors and crew attended the party, which finished at 3 a.m. on March 1,” the bar said in a statement. “This was a well-controlled party, the cast and crew were friendly and it was a great night, not a wild party.”
The statement said that “Chris Pine did not appear to staff to be intoxicated to a level where intervention might have been warranted.”

Good on ya, Chris Pine. I hope you learned your lesson.
