COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Former Ohio State football star Jim Stillwagon has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of firing shots at another driver during a road rage incident last year.

A prosecutor's spokeswoman says 63-year-old Stillwagon pleaded not guilty Monday to four felonious assault counts in Delaware County, north of Columbus.

A hearing to set a trial date is scheduled April 8. Police say Stillwagon was on a motorcycle and fired shots at the driver of a pickup truck Sept. 30.

One shot grazed the 41-year-old man's head. Stillwagon was legally carrying the gun. His attorney has said he fired in self-defense.

The college Hall of Fame middle guard helped the Buckeyes to a national championship in 1968.

Messages were left Monday at his home and his attorney's office.
