Pittsburg Steelers wide receiver and the most recent winner of Dancing With the Stars Hines Ward was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Georgia early Saturday morning.
The pro footballer player, 35, was booked on a DUI charge at the DeKalb County jail near Atlanta at 3:41 am today and later released on $1000 bail.
"Hines is deeply saddened by this incident and apologizes to his fans and the Steelers organization for this distraction," his agent/manager Andrew Ree says in a statement.
However, Ree claims the Hines wasn't intoxicated at the time of the arrest: "From our preliminary investigation we can tell you that we are confident that the facts will show that Hines was NOT impaired by alcohol while driving."
