The forward for the Chicago Bulls, Ronnie Brewer, has officially pleaded not guilty to drinking and driving in a Beverly Hills courthouse today, June 12, 2014.

Though he did not appear, an attorney entered the not guilty plea on Brewer’s behalf to one count of driving under the influence an one count of driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater.

Another hearing has been scheduled for July 15.

Brewer was arrested for a DUI in swanky Beverly Hills, California back on February 19, 2014. Prosecutors stated that his blood alcohol concentration was .15 percent at the time of his arrest.

Brewer began his professional basketball in 2006 after being drafted from the University of Arkansas. In addition to the Chicago Bulls, Brewer has also played for the Utah Jazz, the Memphis Grizzlies, the New York Knicks, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the Houston Rockets.

If found guilty of a DUI, Brewer could face some serious consequences. He may likely be able to avoid jail time, as oftentimes DUI offenders are able to do so depending on the circumstances. However, he may have to be on probation. Brewer may also have to perform community service or attend DUI school.

Additionally, since his DUI arrest was in Los Angeles County, Brewer may have to install an ignition interlock device. An ignition interlock is a device that you plug into your vehicle. In order to start your car, you must blow into the device. If the device detects alcohol on your breath, your car will not start. Most recently, Lindsay Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan, was required to install ignition interlock. They’re quickly becoming the hottest accessory amongst celebs, aren’t they?
