Levert Pleads Innocent

R+B star GERALD LEVERT has pleaded innocent to felony charges of assaulting a police officer and obstructing police business.

The 38-year-old CASANOVA singer was indicted by a grand jury earlier this month (MAR05) on charges stemming from a confrontation with Cleveland, Ohio, police during a 25 February (05) traffic stop.

Levert was arraigned yesterday (22MAR05) in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.

Police said Levert and a passenger in his car intervened when authorities stopped a friend of Levert's for speeding.

The singer's lawyer, ED WADE, says Levert is eager to clear his name, adding, "He's not guilty of these charges."
