Star Trek actor Chris Pine arrested for DUI overseas

Chris-Pine-Large-CoverReports indicate that Chris Pine, star of such movies as the rebooted ‘Star Trek’ franchise and the recently released ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ film, has been arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence in New Zealand.
 
According to multiple sources (including MSN and the AP) Pine is the man identified in the official court reports. Those reports fail to name the man specifically, but police have confirmed that a 33-year-old America was arrested in the early hours with a Blood-alchohol level above .08, the accepted limit in New Zealand. Pine was wrapping his latest film in the area.
 
The American man was tested during a routine traffic-stop located near the town of Methven. Neither Pine’s agent or his publicist have responded to the allegations that Pine was the man involved in the event.
 
We will update the story when an official statement from Pine’s team has been released.
