Anglin did not enter a plea to the charges as his lawyer stated that he needed time to review the documentation, having only received the papers on Friday. The case was adjourned until 1 October and Anglin was bailed to return. The minister faces charges of driving under the influence and careless driving in connection with an incident which occurred in May.
