Rhode Island's boxing legend Vinnie Paz was back in court this morning to be arraigned on charges stemming from a Warwick bar incident.

Paz pleaded not guilty to charges of vandalism and disorderly conduct during his arraignment in Kent County Courthouse.

The incident, which took place last month, involved Paz getting angry and throwing barstools after he allegedly refused to pay a $23 tab.

This is not Paz's first run in with the law, a few months earlier Paz was arrested after an altercation outside a Federal Hill bar. He pleaded no contest and was sentenced to community service.

When asked if he has a drinking problem Paz said, "Alcohol and me, it's not a problem it's an issue, that's all."
