Rock singer Scott Weiland has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence of drugs.
Weiland has been arrested several times on drug-related charges
The Velvet Revolver singer, 40, was stopped by police in November 2007 after he crashed his car on a Los Angeles freeway.
The singer, who faces up to a year in prison if found guilty because of a previous conviction, was arrested after refusing to take a sobriety test.
Mr Weiland, who was not in court, is due back on 4 April.
The former Stone Temple Pilots singer, now a member of Velvet Revolver with former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, entered his plea through his lawyer.
Mr Weiland has a history of drug problems and has been arrested several times on drug-related charges, the last time in 2003.
He was later sentenced to attend a six-month drug programme after pleading no contest to driving under the influence.
