[June 12, 2014]  LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Chicago Bulls forward Ronnie Brewer pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol stemming from a February arrest following a traffic stop in Beverly Hills, California, prosecutors said

An attorney entered not guilty pleas on Brewer's behalf to one count each of driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or greater, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.

Brewer, 29, did not appear in court for the proceedings. Another hearing was scheduled in his case for July 15.

Prosecutors allege the National Basketball Association player had a blood-alcohol concentration of .15 percent when he was stopped by Beverly Hills police officers on February 19.
