Former Saturday Night Live star Tracy Morgan has pleaded not guilty to charges of drunken driving, say prosecutors.

Morgan, 37, entered his plea in Superior Court last week to two misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence of alcohol after being arrested in Los Angeles on Dec. 2, city attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan tells the Associated Press.

The comic, known for his SNL characters Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellow, is slated for a pretrial hearing Feb. 23.

His attorney declined comment.
