Chris Pine really should've just asked for Scotty to beam him up instead of getting behind the wheel!
Unfortunately, it sounds like the Star Trek stud decided to drive the morning of March 1st and ended up with a DUI charge in New Zealand.
He was in the country filming Z for Zachariah and celebrating the wrap party that night, but Chris might've been celebrating a bit too much. He was reportedly stopped for a routine check, which led to his DUI arrest.
We hear the wrap party at Blue Pub Methven finished up around 3 a.m., and while many cast and crew members had designated drivers, Chris apparently decided to drive himself.
Chris' girlfriend, Iris Bjork Johannesdottir, was reportedly in town for the party, but we're not sure if she was with him when he was arrested.
He is now due in Ashburton district court on Monday, March 17th.
Guess someone won't be celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a beer!
