Actor’s licence suspended for six months.
Star Trek actor Chris Pine pleaded guilty on March 17 to drink driving in New Zealand and had his licence suspended for six months, reports said.
Pine, 33, was charged after he failed a breath test this month in the South Island town of Methven, where he had been attending a party after completing the science fiction film Z for Zachariah, New Zealand Newswire reported.
Judge Joanna Maze denied an application from the American’s lawyers to discharge him without conviction, saying she was “obliged to treat offenders alike”.
She suspended Pine’s New Zealand driver’s licence for six months and fined him NZ$93 (RM260) Fairfax New Zealand reported.
Pine, who is best known for playing Captain Kirk in director J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek reboot, declined to speak to media outside the Ashburton courthouse before being driven away. – AFP
