BATAVIA, Ohio -- Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Leon Hall pleaded not guilty Friday to a drunken driving charge.


The 24-year-old cornerback was cited early Sunday on counts of operating a vehicle under the influence and driving outside his lane in Union Township, east of Cincinnati.

An attorney for Hall entered his plea Friday in Clermont County Municipal Court, and a preliminary hearing was set for April 20.

An Ohio State Highway Patrol spokesman said Hall took a breath test that showed a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.149 percent. Ohio's legal limit is 0.08.
