Pavlik pleads not guilty

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CANFIELD, Ohio -- Former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count charging him with driving an all-terrain vehicle while drunk.

The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown reports Pavlik's attorney, Damian Billak, entered the plea on his behalf in a Mahoning County court.

Deputies say the 29-year-old Pavlik was arrested Wednesday night at his home outside Youngstown after a neighbor reported he crashed the ATV into a telephone pole and lamppost.

Pavlik in January finished two months of alcoholism treatment at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Earlier this month, trainer Jack Loew announced they had split ways.

Billak says Kelly plans to relocate to California. A pretrial hearing is set for Jan. 13.
