Food Network host and former Louisville restauranteur Darnell “Superchef” Ferguson pleaded not guilty Monday to strangulation and burglary charges in connection to allegedly assaulting his estranged wife while attempting to drop off their children at her apartment.

Ferguson, 36, was arraigned in Jefferson County Circuit Court on multiple charges, including felony counts of first-degree burglary and strangulation.

Shortly after Ferguson was indicted by a grand jury earlier this month, his legal counsel Krsna Tibbs released a statement.

“Darnell is looking forward to being able to have his day in court and presenting to the jury of his peers, evidence that will show he is innocent of the charges,” Tibbs said. “The law clearly states that the charges do not determine guilt or innocence.”

A protective order was issued Jan. 2 against Ferguson, according to records from Jefferson County Family Court. According to court documents filed in August, Ferguson had previously been ordered to only have limited contact with his wife.
