APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett was charged Tuesday with two counts of disorderly conduct stemming from an altercation with two women in a bar this summer.
``We will enter not-guilty pleas to the two charges and will defend these charges aggressively,'' lawyer Avi Berk said.
The Packers, who gave the 26-year-old Barnett a six-year, $34.85 million contract extension in April, have monitored the situation since Barnett's arrest, but have previously declined to comment.
NFL spokesman Randall Liu has said that the case is subject to league review under the terms of the NFL's personal-conduct policy.
The two misdemeanor charges carry a maximum combined penalty of six months in jail and a $2,000 fine.
