Chris Pine - Chris Pine pleads guilty to drink driving
Chris Pine has been banned from driving for six months and was fined $93 after pleading guilty to drink driving at the Ashburton district court in New Zealand today (17.03.14).
Chris Pine has pleaded guilty to drink driving.
The 'Star Trek' actor was fined $93 and had his driver's licence suspended for six months during a court hearing at the Ashburton district court in New Zealand today (17.03.14).
Chris' lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist, had applied for the star to be discharged without conviction after claiming he had already suffered emotionally and professionally because of the worldwide negative coverage of his crime.
The judge, Joanna Maze, said she accepted Chris was ''entirely remorseful'' of his actions as he had pleaded guilty to the charge at the earliest opportunity and had complied with the police.
The 33-year-old star was stopped by officers in a ''routine operation'' in Methven, Canterbury, New Zealand, on March 1 and was arrested after tests revealed his blood-alcohol level was 0.11 per cent, which is over New Zealand's legal limit of 0.08 per cent.
Chris was in the country filming 'Z for Zachariah' and had been out celebrating the end of the shoot, the night before he was arrested.
Blue Pub Methven manager Casey Crawford said around 70 cast and crew members, and local volunteers had hired the nightspot on February 28, with the party ending around 3am on March 1, the morning the actor was arrested.
Mr. Crawford said previously: ''Chris Pine arrived here and had his supermodel girlfriend [Iris Bjork Johannesdottir] with him.''
He added: ''You can see the photos behind the bar with our staff and he looked fine, I only ever saw him drinking tap beer and his partner she was just drinking sav wine.''
