Prosecutors said in a statement on Tuesday that the 28-year-old former Olympic champion had repeatedly denied to police that he had been driving the luxury car when it crashed in the early hours of May 4th this year.
Northug fled the accident scene, but was apprehended by police soon afterwards. The sports star denied his involvement, but later confessed.
He recently said in a statement that he accepted the charge and would plead guilty before the court in Trondheim.
Northug initially told police his companion, who was injured during the crash, had been driving the car. Later the Norwegian released a statement that he had driven and crashed the car.
Northug has been charged for six counts relating to the incident, including driving while under the influence, failing to assist at the scene of an accident, and making false statements to the Norwegian police
