Washington Nationals general manager Jim Bowden pled not guilty yesterday to charges of drunken driving in Miami Beach, Fla., last month.

Bowden was charged with DUI after he was pulled over for running a stop sign in the early morning of April 17. He failed a field sobriety test but refused to take a breath-alcohol test.

Bowden, 44, entered a written plea of not guilty yesterday. He did not appear at the hearing in a Miami-Dade County court.

His fiancee, Joy Browning, was due to be arraigned yesterday on felony charges of resisting arrest with violence and on misdemeanor charges of battery. That court date, however, was postponed until May 17.

Bowden has strongly denied any charges of domestic abuse between him and Browning, 36. The couple’s lawyer, John Bergendahl, did not return messages yesterday.
