Lindsay Lohan pleaded not guilty Tuesday to three charges related to a June traffic accident that led a judge to revoke the troubled actress' probation last month.

The 26-year-old actress, who did not attend the hearing, was arraigned on misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, lying to police and obstructing police when she said she was not behind the wheel of her sports car when it smashed into a truck in Santa Monica, Calif.

Lohan's not guilty plea was entered in a Los Angeles court by her attorney.

The "Liz & Dick" star is on probation for a 2011 jewelry theft and could be sent to jail if she is found to have violated her probation terms.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey Tuesday ordered the actress to attend a Jan. 30 pretrial hearing. A date for Lohan's probation hearing will be set then.

Lohan has been in and out of rehab and jail since a 2007 arrest for drunken driving and cocaine possession.

The troubled star was arrested in New York on a misdemeanor assault charge on the same day that the Santa Monica car crash charges were filed.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has not filed a criminal complaint in the assault case.
