PORTLAND, Ore. — Abby Wambach’s attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf at an arraignment Tuesday on a charge of driving under the influence of intoxicants.
Wambach, who won a World Cup with the U.S. national team last summer, was arrested on Saturday night after running a red light in Portland, Oregon, where she lives.
Wambach was not required to be present at the arraignment at the Multnomah County Courthouse. She is scheduled to speak Tuesday night at the University of Kentucky.
Her attorney, Ben Eder, had no comment following the plea. The next court date is April 26.
Wambach, a two-time Olympic gold medalist who announced her retirement from the national team in December, posted an apology on her Facebook page on Sunday and took responsibility for her actions.
