WEST COVINA – Chino City Attorney Jimmy Gutierrez pleaded not guilty this week to two misdemeanor drunken driving charges.

Gutierrez’s attorney entered the pleas on Gutierrez’s behalf Tuesday in West Covina Superior Court. Gutierrez was not required to appear because the charges are misdemeanors.

Gutierrez, Chino’s city attorney since 1975, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol in October after an officer observed him swerving on the 60 Freeway in Industry.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office later charged him with driving under the influence, and with driving with blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of 0.08.
