Former UFC champion Cain Velasquez on Friday pleaded not guilty to an attempted murder count and other charges in a San Jose courtroom.
Velasquez is charged with attempted murder after he allegedly shot into a pickup truck carrying a man accused of sexually abusing one of Velasquez's young relatives. Another man in the car was injured by gunfire.
The vehicle-to-vehicle shooting occurred in January along a roadway in Coyote Valley, between San Jose and Morgan Hill, and Velasquez has been denied bail since his arrest.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for late September.
