Chris Pine Charged With Drink Driving

http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/new...-drink-driving

Celebrated Hollywood actor Chris Pine is facing a charge for allegedly drink-driving while in New Zealand.

Pine, 33, was stopped by police apparently after leaving the Z for Zachariah wrap party, held at Blue Pub in Methven, Canterbury, early on March 1.

He allegedly failed an evidential blood test.

Pine is famous for playing Captain James T Kirk in Star Trek and Jack Ryan.

He will appear in the Ashburton District Court on Monday charged with driving with excess blood alcohol.
My family's home town, of all places. Priceless! Probably the most excitement Ash Vegas will have seen in a while.

Assuming this is all true, all I can say is, don't drink and drive.

You don't have to do it, Mr. Pine, you've got no excuse. I hope you get all the help you need, and I'm looking forward to seeing you in the next Star Trek film.

Well, he's not the first Star Trek captain to be busted for drunk driving. Avery Brooks was caught a few years ago.

No respect for drunk drivers. Be rather glad that coincidence didn't strike and he ran over one of your family members in your family's hometown.

Must be nice to be so rich you don't have to worry about breaking the law. Or, breaking the law in another country.

Thing is he's probably got the money to have a car and driver waiting outside any bar or club he cares to visit, so he's got even less excuse that the average guy who has no excuse.

I don't know why he didn't have Scotty just beam him to his destination, or at least have Sulu fly him there via shuttle...

Uh-oh... Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros know what happens to actors on JJ Abrams/Damon Lindelof productions who get DUIs. Expect Spock to accidentally phaser Kirk to death at the start of the next film.

The correct term is "drunk driving." "Drink driving" sounds like you're hauling a load of Jack Daniel's.

Re: Chris Pine Charged With Drink Driving

Perhaps, being New Zealand, the name of the offence is different.
