Despite admitting guilt and taking responsibility for her actions earlier this week after being arrested on drunk driving charge, retired soccer star Abby Wambach entered a not guilty plea on Tuesday at the Multnomah County Courthouse in Portland, according to TMZ Sports.
Wambach, 35, was arrested at 2:02 a.m. local time on Sunday and charged with misdemeanor DUII after running a red light. Police reportedly administered a field sobriety test that Wambach failed and she was taken to a local jail.
Wambach claims that the arrest came after she had dinner at a friend's house. In an apology posted on Facebook later Sunday, she said "I have always demanded excellence from myself. I have let myself and others down."
After the arrest, her sponsor Mini USA announced it was was “re-evaluating” its relationship with the all-time leading career scorer in international soccer and was removing content that features her.
Wambach is due back in court at the end of the month to continue her fight against the charges.
