Chris Pine Pleads Guilty, Fined for New Zealand DUI, Banned From Driving for Six Months

A calm Chris Pine signed autographs and
spoke with fans as he emerged from the
Ashburton District Court following his
high-profile appearance this morning.
"It's all good guys, it's all going to be okay,'' he said as fans and media crowded in on him.
Pine, known for playing Captain Kirk in the Star Trek movies, pleaded guilty Monday in a New Zealand court to a charge of drunken driving.
Pine stood silently during the hearing, allowing his lawyer, Marilyn Gilchrist to enter the plea.
Police pulled over Pine early on March 1 after he'd attended a party to mark the end of filming on the movie Z for
Zachariah, which is due for release next year. Fairfax Media reported that Pine told police he'd consumed four vodka.
Police said Pine gave a positive breath test when he was stopped after 3 a.m. and a subsequent blood test showed
an alcohol level of 113 micrograms. The legal limit in New Zealand is 80 micrograms.
Judge Joanna Maze said Pine would be treated like any other offender and banned him from driving for six months,
fined him NZ$400 ($340) and ordered him to pay NZ$93 in costs.

She accepted that Pine, who stood silently throughout the hearing, was remorseful, and had made a large donation to a New Zealand charity. Maze said she had taken into account his good record, as well as excessive media
coverage of the event.
