URBANA, Ill. (AP) -Illinois defensive tackle Josh Brent has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license.
Brent's appearance in court Monday came after his Saturday arrest prompted Illinois coach Ron Zook to suspend the 21-year-old from the team indefinitely.
Brent played in 10 games last fall as a sophomore. He had 34 tackles, 8 1/2 tackles for loss and 1 1/2 sacks.
The Champaign County state's attorney's office says police on Saturday also discovered a warrant for Brent's arrest for failing to appear in a Livingston County court on an earlier charge of driving on a suspended license.
Prosecutors say Brent's blood alcohol level Saturday was .114 - well over the .08 legal limit.
Brent's next court date in Champaign County is April 30. He's also due in a Livingston County courtroom on March 23.
