Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell pleaded not guilty today to his second DUI charge.

Bell was arrested in Glendale on Dec. 21, 2015, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. Prosecutors said that Bell was seen driving erratically on San Fernando Road. The actor also allegedly refused to take a sobriety test.

At the arraignment today, Bell pleaded not guilty through his attorney. He is due for a pretrial hearing on August 5.

In 2010, Bell was convicted of driving under the influence in San Diego.

Because this is his second charge within a 10 year period, Bell could potentially face 365 days in county jail if convicted. Until then, Bell, who submitted proof of attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous classes, remains out on his own recognizance.
