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.

No she will probably get 18 months while LiLo escapes the big house once again.

You'd think having personally witnessed what speeding and drinking while driving can do to someone, that this cow would have the common sense to drink at home or get a damn ride.

Mixing medication with alcohol, brilliant! Why should she take any responsibility for decisions she makes??? That's just crazy. Smh.

What a worn out used up skank that probably was a high school cheerleader. Mr. Yikes is right this time. She was over the limit, so f*ck her.

One glass of champagne does not take you up to .08. And if you're taking antibiotics, maybe you shouldn't drink at all.

BS. A pic is worth 1000 words. Translation: "a glass" = 2 bottles and "antibiotic" = Valium

So, she was taking a medication with a warning to not drink alcohol while on it, then drank alcohol on an empty stomach. Therefore, her illiteracy and bad judgment prevents her from being arrested and charged with DUI after speeding and blowing a 0.84!

She is 50 something years old. She should know better. I can understand a 22 year old screwing up, but not someone twice (probably closer to thrice) that.
