Linda Hogan
insists ... downing ONE glass of champagne before getting behind the wheel isn't enough to put her in the DUI category -- pleading not guilty today to driving under the influence after her October arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... Linda was popped for DUI in Malibu after cops say she was speeding around town with a blood alcohol level of .084 ... just over the legal limit in CA.

At the time, a rep for Linda said Linda drank one glass of champagne at a jewelry event that night ... on an empty stomach ... but she also had taken antibiotics, which exacerbated the effects of the alcohol.

Nevertheless, Linda was subsequently charged with two counts of DUI. She pled not guilty today.

If convicted, she could face up to 18 months in jail ... though it's unlikely she'll spend any time behind bars since she has no prior DUI convictions.

Linda is due back in court March 21.

Linda Hogan...Lindsay Lohan...am I the only one who had to read that "headline" twice, because at first I saw "Lindsay Lohan...I was NOT driving drunk..." LOL...I was thinking for a second she got arrested again...you know after saying she didn't have a problem. Also, sad that 20-something Lindsay could easily be mistaken for Linda Hogan...just saying.

How can you plead not guilty - evidence shows your blood alcohol level was over the limit. Poor choice to drink on an empty stomach and with antibiotics. Guilty!

This is entertaining, and quite typical of women who claim it's the husband who was obsessive while it's commonly the wife in those situations :D

Her rep should have checked before making that statement, taking antibiotics does not exacerbated the effects of the alcohol, but alcohol may decrease the effectiveness of antibiotics.
