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.

But she's a liar. We knew that already. Side note- she needs a makeover more than anyone I know. She's in her 50's for God's sake. Time to ease up on the makeup, soften that harsh, fake yellow hair and dress her age. She does not need to look this bad all the time. She needs a stylist. She's not 22 and she's the only one that doesn't realize it. I bet there's a decent looking lady under all that mess.

Someone should let her rep know that Vicodin is not actually an antibiotic. The pins for pupils she has in that mugshot would even put me to shame and Ive been snorting the 30mg Oxycodone IR pills all day

No one knows just how many glasses of booze it takes for one person to get above a state’s legal limit for drinking. For some, only glass of wine could do it. That’s what happened to Linda Hogan, who was arrested in Malibu for driving under the influence. She claims that she had only one glass of wine, but TMZ reports that her blood alcohol content was .084. Like California, Virginia’s legal limit is also .08. At that limit, a presumption arises that the accused was under the influence of alcohol intoxicants at the time of the offense.
