Chris Pine has been arrested in New Zealand on suspicion of driving while drunk.

The Star Trek actor's car was pulled over by police on March 1 after he reportedly left a wrap party in Canterbury for his film Z for Zachariah.

Pine allegedly failed subsequent sobriety tests and was charged with driving with excessive blood alcohol.

He is due in court on Monday.

A statement from Canterbury Police reads: "A 33-year-old American national was stopped during a routine drink-drive operation near Methven, Mid Canterbury, early on Saturday morning, March 1. He has been charged with driving with excess blood alcohol and will appear in the Ashburton District Court on March 17. Given that the matter is now before the court, police will not be releasing any further information."

Pine has been working on the post- apocalyptic film for several months.

The project co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Aussie "it girl" Margot Robbie.
