Chris Pine Arrested for DUI in New Zealand

He may boldly go where few men venture to go as Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek.

But Chris Pine sadly made like many other celebrities this week when he got arrested for drunk driving.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor was stopped by police in the early hours of March 1 after attending a wrap party for the film Z for Zachariah.

Authorities in Canterbury confirm that Pine was pulled over during a routine check, though he would not initially identity himself, which is permitted under local law.

He's due in Ashburton district court on March 17.

The manager of the Blue Pub Methven, where the event was held, says the party lasted until around 3 a.m.; that Pine spent most of it with his girlfriend; and that designated drivers were on the scene.

It's unclear why Pine didn't use one, but he's far from alone as a celebrity who has run into trouble with the law in 2014:
