Heyward-Bey pleads not guilty in DUI case
An attorney for Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf Thursday to drunken-driving charges stemming from an arrest on the Bay Bridge, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday. Heyward-Bey, 25, who played at Maryland, was not required to appear in San Francisco Superior Court to enter his plea to misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol content above the legal limit of 0.08 percent, the newspaper reported. Judge Donna Little ordered that he show up for his next court date June 28. Heyward-Bey, the Raiders' first-round draft pick in 2009, was arrested about 2 a.m. April 7 after California Highway Patrol officers spotted him weaving and speeding on the lower deck in his 2012 Range Rover. He failed a field sobriety test, and his blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.12 percent at a police station, said his attorney, Ivan Golde.
