LOS ANGELES — Actress Jaime Pressly pleaded not guilty Friday to a pair of DUI counts stemming from her arrest last month in Santa Monica.

The 33-year-old star of the television show “My Name Is Earl” was charged Tuesday in the misdemeanor case, which includes the allegation that she had a blood-alcohol content of .20 percent or greater. Pressly, whose attorney entered the not-guilty plea on her behalf, was arrested about 11:30 p.m. Jan. 5 by Santa Monica police. She was released around seven hours later on $15,000 bail.
