"Captain Kirk" busted for alleged drink driving in NZ

Chris Pine, the actor son of Robert Pine (CHiPs), who played Captain James T Kirk in Star Trek, will appear in the Ashburton District Court on Monday charged with excess blood alcohol.

Pine has been in New Zealand filming Z for Zachariah alongside Australian-born star of The Wolf of Wall Street, Margot Robbie, and Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, star of 12 Years A Slave.

He was stopped by police last month in Methven, Canterbury.

He allegedly failed an evidential blood test.
