Chris Pine pleads guilty to drink-driving charges
By email@example.com (WENN Newsdesk)
Chris Pine has pleaded guilty to a charge of drink-driving in New Zealand.
Earlier this month (Mar14), the Star Trek actor was driving home from a wrap party for his film Z for Zachariah in Canterbury when his car was pulled over by local Methven police at a routine drink-drive checkpoint.
After failing subsequent sobriety tests, he was arrested and was charged with driving with excessive blood alcohol.
On Monday (17Mar14), Pine appeared at a hearing at the Ashburton District court, where police told officials tests revealed the 33 year old's blood alcohol level at 0.11 per cent, which is well over the country's legal limit of .08 per cent.
According to Fairfax Media, Pine's lawyer Marilyn Gilchrist told the judge the actor acknowledged he made the wrong decision to take the wheel after allegedly consuming four vodka drinks, and he had "suffered emotionally and professionally and that the negative publicity had put his acting contracts in jeopardy".
The judge accepted Pine was "entirely remorseful", and fined him $93 NZD (£48). Pine's New Zealand driver's licence was suspended for six months.
