Evander Kane arrived in Buffalo today, and pleaded not guilty at his arraignment this morning at Buffalo City Court. Kane was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass, non-criminal disorderly conduct and four counts of non-criminal harassment a few weeks ago due to a late night altercation at a local bar.

Kane declined to comment to the media, and his attorney Paul Cambria said, "My only comment is he's not guilty."

The maximum sentence for Kane could be up to 90 days in jail, but according to DA Michael Flaherty (and as reported by WBEN's Brian Mazurowski) first time offenders such as Kane rarely see jail time, and many of these cases are resolved without a trial.

The accusations against Kane today said that he was behind the bar at the time of the incident, serving as a "celebrity bartender."

According to the DA, Kane won't get any kind of celebrity treatment in court. Said Flaherty, "We'll treat him like any other defendant."
