Chris Pine, known for playing Captain Kirk in the new Star Trek movies, has been charged with drink-driving in New Zealand.

Court officials said the Hollywood actor is due to make his first court appearance in the case on Monday.

New Zealand police said in a statement that a 33-year-old American man was charged on March 1 with driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit. The limit in New Zealand is .08%.

Police did not name the man, but said he was stopped during a routine early-morning check near the South Island town of Methven.

Pine's agent and publicist could not be reached immediately for comment.

The actor also starred as a CIA agent in the movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
