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.

what a lying stupid bitch. assuming she weighs approx 140-150, she would have had to downed at least 3 5oz glasses of champane to be at .08. also, antibiotics dont raise the bac, all it does or can do is cause a person reactions to the drinks to be more intense, the bac would still be the same. what a lying bleached blond whore ass bitch!!!

I've always thought she gave her ex (Hulk) too much of the blame in the divorce. Neither strikes me as really intelligent , but he seems at least somewhat grounded (mind you it's by Hollywood standards) than she does , at least that's my opinion.

You would think that she would learn with her son's horrible accident and the fact that the passenger in that car was horribly injured and paralyzed for life. What is she thinking that her ex husband is going to bail her out if god forbid that it happens to her??? Like he bailed out his son?? Geesh, doesn't this money sucking trollop have any sense or decency? She was the one who spent her husband's money so fast that he was forced to go back into wrestling. Why doesn't she get a job.
