GREEN BAY (WLUK) - A Green Bay Packers assistant coach entered a not guilty in advance of what was scheduled to be an initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.

Darren Perry, the safeties coach, faces one count of a first offense of operating while intoxicated stemming from a traffic stop in December. He also one count each of refusing to take a breathalyzer test and making an unsafe lane change after the traffic stop on Dec. 17.

A written not guilty plea was entered Wednesday, according to court records - avoiding the need for the 1 p.m. appearance today.

A final pre-trial conference is set for March 30. All are traffic citations, not criminal cases.
