Matt Dillon pleaded not guilty Wednesday to speeding in Vermont.

The actor, 44, was stopped by police on Dec. 30 for allegedly driving 106 m.p.h. on an interstate highway in a rented Chevy Impala. He was charged with careless and negligent operation for driving more than 30 m.p.h. above the 65-m.p.h. speed limit, the Associated Press reports.

Dillon's lawyer, Mark Kaplan, entered the plea for the actor, who did not appear in court.

If convicted, the Crash Oscar nominee faces up to a year in jail and could be fined $1,000.

A suggested New Year's resolution for Matt Dillon: Slow down.

On Tuesday night, the actor, 44, was pulled over in Newbury, Vt., after state troopers clocked him driving 106 mph in a 65 mph zone.

Dillon, who was driving a rented 2009 Chevy Impala, was taken to a station in nearby Bradford, where he was photographed, fingerprinted and given a citation.

The process typically takes 15 to 20 minutes, according to Vermont State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Tara Thomas. "I have every reason to believe he was cooperative," she says.

Dillon is due to appear at Orange County Court on Jan. 21.

His rep declined to comment.

Matt Dillon plays a racist cop with a chip on his shoulder in Crash, the new ensemble drama costarring Ryan Phillippe, Sandra Bullock and Don Cheadle. It's a far cry from his days as a druggie criminal (Drugstore Cowboy), a smarmy con man (There's Something About Mary) and his costarring turn opposite a Volkswagen (in Disney's lighthearted Lindsay Lohan flick Herbie: Fully Loaded). Even though his Crash character, Officer Ryan, is a bad apple, the 41-year-old actor tells PEOPLE he gained new respect for the police while taking on his latest role.
