Slash's bandmate appears in court

Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland has pleaded not guilty to charges of drug driving.

The star entered his plea through a lawyer today (March 6).

The singer was arrested in November 2007 after crashing his vehicle in Los Angeles allegedly under the influence of intoxicants.

If found guilty Weiland could face up to 12 months in prison because of his previous drug convictions, reports BBC News. He will return to court on April 4.
