Barnett, 26, was charged after allegedly knocking the drinks out of the hands of two women, damaging a telephone belonging to one of the women and later throwing a drink in the face of one of the women and knocking her down.
Each charge could result in a 90-day jail sentence and $1,000 fine.
Barnett told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that the situation was "blown out of proportion" and didn't warrant criminal charges. He claimed, "Being a Packers player has a lot to do with it being blown out of proportion."
A second court appearance was set for Jan. 18 with trial scheduled Jan. 29, but Barnett's attorney told the Press-Gazette he would seek to have the dates pushed back sometime after Feb. 10, so they would not interfere with the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl.
