    Chris Pine has been arrested for drunk driving in New Zealand, according to reports.

    The 33-year-old actor was pulled over March 1 after attending at a wrap party for Z for Zachariah.

    New Zealand Police said in a statement that a 33-year-old American was charged March 1 with driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit, which is .08 percent. They did not identify the man, but said he was stopped during a routine early morning check near the South Island town of Methven: "Given that the matter is now before the court police will not be releasing any further information."

    Casey Crawford, manager of Methven's Blue Pub, told The Press that Pine was celebrating on the night of Feb. 28 with his co-stars. His girlfriend, Icelandic beauty queen Iris Bjork Johannesdottir, joined him.

    Pine was drinking beer and did not appear intoxicated before leaving around 2:30 a.m., Crawford told the newspaper. "Chris was really good. They were a good crowd, the whole lot of them," he added.

    Crawford said transportation was provided for patrons; he is unsure why Pine got behind the wheel.

    Pine has been in New Zealand filming Z for Zachariah alongside The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie (who also attended the party, per Crawford) and 12 Years a Slave's Chiwetel Ejiofor.
