Former Soccer Star Abby Wambach Pleads Not Guilty to DUI Charge

Retired soccer star Abby Wambach pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a DUI charge she received over the weekend.

Wambach’s lawyer, Ben Eder, entered the plea on her behalf in a Portland, Oregon, courtroom and confirmed the judge’s order allowing Wambach to travel out of the state for work. He did not offer additional comment outside the courtroom. Wambach was not required to appear in court on the charge.

Wambach was arrested Saturday night after she was pulled over for allegedly running a red light, according to Portland police, who said an officer “observed signs that she was under the influence of alcohol.”

She was taken into custody after she failed field sobriety tests, police said. She was taken to the Central Precinct where she failed a breath test, police said.
