Fox Pleads Not Guilty To Drink-driving Charges
Actress VIVICA A. FOX has pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges of drink driving.
The Kill Bill star's plea was entered by her lawyer Richard Hutton during a hearing in Van Nuys, California on Thursday (27Sep07).
The 43-year-old was apprehended in March (07) after she was allegedly caught driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) on a Los Angeles freeway.
Police officer Leland Tang told Thursday's hearing he spotted Fox's car travelling at around 80 miles (128 kilometres) per hour in a 65 mile (105 kilometres) per hour zone.
He said, "Fox exhibited signs of alcohol intoxication. A field sobriety test was administered and she scored over (California's legal limit) 0.08."
A trial date has been set for 29 October (07). If convicted, Fox faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 (GBP500) fine.
