CENTRAL CITY (AP) — A south-central Nebraska school principal accused of drunken driving has pleaded not guilty.

Merrick County Court records say 38-year-old Lee Wolfe entered the written plea Tuesday. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Oct. 2 in Central City.

Authorities say Wolfe’s blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit after he was stopped Aug. 11 on U.S. Highway 30 in Central City. An officer pulled him over because of expired license plates.

Central City Police Chief Mark Hogue says Wolfe’s son was with him. Wolfe was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence with a passenger under 16 and for having expired plates.

Wolfe is principal at Shoemaker Elementary in Grand Island.
