Authorities (who didn’t identify Pine by name) confirmed that an American man, 33, was taken into custody March 1 after his blood-alcohol levels tested over New Zealand’s legal limit of .08 percent.
The Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit star was with gal pal Iris Bjork Johannesdottir as he celebrated wrapping up filming Feb. 28 at a watering hole in Methven called the Blue Pub, bar manager named Casey Crawford told New Zealand newspaper The Press. Crawford said the star, who left the establishment at 2:30 a.m., didn’t look to be under the influence and was gregarious to fans looking to get a picture with him.
“Chris was really good,” Crawford said. “He looked like he just wanted to spend time with his partner.”
The actor is slated to appear before a judge at Ashburton District Court Monday.
