West Covina City Councilman Michael Spence pleaded not guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of a drug.

Spence, 50, was not required to attend the hearing and entered his plea through his attorney.

Spence was allegedly driving under the influence of a drug when his vehicle struck a pole near Azusa Avenue and Cypress Street in Covina June 12, according to prosecutors.

A pretrial hearing was set Dec. 7 for Spence, who could face up to six months in county jail if convicted of the charge, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
