Green pleads not guilty

Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green pleaded not guilty today to disorderly conduct after his wife called 911 for help because she felt threatened during an argument.

Green, who wasn't at court, sent two attorneys to enter the plea for him, the Associated Press reported. Green wasn't required to appear at the proceeding. Brown County Court Commissioner Lawrence Gazeley set Green's next court date for Aug. 29, with a trial to start Aug. 31.

The Packers open their season Sept. 11.

Officers arrested Green on April 25 after his wife, Heather, called 911 from his home. A woman's voice was heard saying "help me" before the line went dead.

The Brown County Sheriff's Department said Heather Green felt threatened when she and her husband were arguing. Officers said Green became agitated and resisted arrest before an officer drew a Taser stun gun.

Green, released after posting $150 bond, filed for divorce April 28.

One of Green's attorneys, Marc Hammer, said Green was "sorry his family, wife and employer were brought into such a public event."
