Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey pleaded not guilty in a California court today on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, according to TMZ.com. Authorities say he was a drunk when crossing the San Francisco Bay Bridge April 7th.

According to police, Heyward-Bey was stopped for speeding and weaving in and out of his lane. Officers say Heyward-Bey failed a field sobriety test and was ticketed for DUI and released.

Heyward-Bey's next court date is June 28th and if convicted, he faces up to six months in jail.

Heyward-Bey, a fourth-year player out of Maryland, caught 64 passes for 975 yards and four touchdowns last year.
