Chris Pine Pleads Guilty to DUI, Has License Suspended

by at . Comments

Chris Pine pleaded guilty Monday in a New Zealand court to a charge of drunken driving, paid a fine and had his license suspended for six months.

Police pulled over Pine early March 1 after he attended a party to mark the end of filming on the movie Z for Zachariah, which is due for a 2015 release.

Reports indicate that Pine told police he'd consumed four vodka drinks.

Sure enough, police told the court that a blood test found Pine's blood-alcohol level was 0.11 percent, over New Zealand's legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Pine stood silently at the hearing, allowing his lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist to enter the plea and acknowledge he made the wrong decision to drive that night.

Gilchrist said her client had suffered both emotionally and professionally from this and that the negative publicity had put his acting contracts in jeopardy.

The judge said she accepted Pine was "entirely remorseful," as well.

Pine appeared relaxed as he left the courtroom, stopping to sign a couple of autographs for fans who had gathered outside before being driven away.

The bar where Chris had been partying said "Chris Pine did not appear to staff to be intoxicated to a level where intervention might have been warranted."
