The singer with band New Shoes, Paulo Nutini has appeared before the Sheriff Court in Paisley and denied charges of him driving whilst twice over the drink driving limit.
Prosecutors claim that Nutini was breathalysed and gave a reading of 48 micrograms of alcohol in 100ml of breath. This is double the 22 micrograms drink limit in Scotland.
The 30-year-old singer was arrested on 21 February 2017 and released on an undertaking to attend court.
Nutini’s advocate told the court he had spoke to the prosecution and had told them the details of Nutini’s defence and his intention to deny the allegation.
He also told the court that is anything should change he would notify the court.
Nutini’s drink-driving trial was set for June, with a pre-trial hearing fixed for some time in mid-May.
