MISSOULA, Mont. -- The son of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding.

Nate Montana appeared in Missoula County Justice Court on Friday.

Jail records show the 21-year-old Montana was booked into jail on a first-offense DUI charge at 3:46 a.m. Friday and released after posting a $685 bond.

The Missoulian reports that Montana and his attorney declined to comment at the hearing.

Montana transferred from Notre Dame to the University of Montana in Missoula in February and is vying for the starting quarterback spot.

Montana was one of 11 Notre Dame athletes arrested on misdemeanor charges of underage drinking at a party in South Bend, Ind., last July.
