LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) Former Boston Bruins star Ray Bourque (bork) has pleaded not guilty to a drunken driving charge.

Bourque was charged Friday with operating under the influence of alcohol after his Mercedes-Benz rear-ended a minivan in an Andover construction zone. No one was hurt.

The 55-year-old Bourque entered his plea Monday in Lawrence District Court.

A police report filed in court said Bourque had a blood-alcohol level of 0.249, three times the legal limit. Authorities say he told police he had ''a few drinks'' at the Andover Country Club.

In a statement Sunday, Bourque said he accepted responsibility for his actions. He said, ''I am not happy about the situation I put myself into.''

Bourque was originally scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, but his lawyer asked for it to be moved up.
