Former Arizona Cardinals running back Michael Pittman was formally arraigned in Maricopa County Superior Court Thursday on two counts of aggravated assault.
Superior Court Commissioner William David Anderson entered a plea of innocent on behalf of Pittman, whose presence was waived for the brief hearing.
Anderson also scheduled Pittman's next court appearance for July 30.
Pittman was formally charged June 4 with aggravated assault after Phoenix police said Pittman rammed his wife's Mercedes-Benz with his Hummer H2 during an argument May 31 over whether he could take his 3-year-old son to training camp.
At the time of his arrest, Pittman, who now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was on probation as a result of pleading guilty in connection with two prior fights with his wife.
Pittman is scheduled to appear in Tempe Justice Court for a probation revocation hearing July 2.
