(Newser) – The latest celebrity to make one wonder, "Why not just take a cab?" is Chris Pine. The Star Trek actor was arrested March 1 on suspicion of driving drunk in New Zealand, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter. All authorities will say is that a 33-year-old American man was stopped. Pine had reportedly just left a wrap party for Z for Zachariah, a science fiction flick that was filming on location. The manager of the pub where the party was held says designated drivers were available.

Only idiots use the dangerous alcohol drug. Try living your life WITHOUT dangerous drugs. You'll be far better off and so will everyone else. Those who use the alcohol drug and then drive should be eliminated from society.

Really, really dumb move, Chrissy Boy! In particular in a country where they drive on the left hand side of the road, so if you're not used to it and driving impaired... (Does anyone else think that it's somewhat ironic that his court date is set for St. Patty's day?)
