Bar employees may have claimed Hines Ward looked nice and sober late Friday night, but looks can be deceiving.

Police have released their findings of the traffic stop that took place in Georgia, with officers saying they detected a "strong odor" of alcohol on the Pittsburgh wide receiver when he opened the door. Ward subsequently blew a .128 on the field sobriety test before being taken into custody.

The legal limit is .08.

Ward told the cops he had only drank two Coronas on the evening and was not impaired.

But the arresting officer says the DWTS victor had a difficult time keeping his balance during a "walk and turn evaluation" and also had trouble following his finger. For a guy who follows multiple passing routes on Sunday afternoons, that's never a good sign.

Hines Ward is one of the most upstanding citizens in the NFL, making the news of his DUI arrest shocking for all who follow the league.

But the wide receiver's rep the "preliminary investigation" makes him "confident that the facts will show that Hines was NOT impaired by alcohol while driving," while those who actually saw the Dancing with the Stars champion out that night concur.

Hines Ward Wins!

A waiter at the Bucket Bottle, an establishment Ward frequented Friday night, said the All-Pro was there for a few hours, but only downed a couple drink. He told TMZ Ward was very nice and didn't appear inebriated.

A waitress at Oasis, another bar Ward stopped at, echoed this image of the Steeler only have a drink or two and scarcely causing a scene.

Of course, a sobriety test says a lot more than two anonymous employees. So we'll update this story when more hard evidence is revealed.

Hines Ward has gone from Dancing with the Stars to perp walking with the police.

The Super Bowl champion and reality show winner was busted for DUI this morning in Dekalb County, Georgia. He posted $1,000 bail and released shortly after the arrest.

Between this bonehead move and the mailed-in proposal of Roy Williams, one thing is certain: the NFL really needs to ends its lockout. The players have no idea what to do with so much time off.

With infectious charisma to match his talent, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was named the winner of Dancing With the Stars last night.

How does that compare to being the MVP of Super Bowl XLI? What was his favorite part of the experience? What was the most difficult part?

Ward offered thoughts on that and much more to the L.A. Times:

Hines Ward Wins DWTS!

On his faith in Kym Johnson, despite her injured neck: "I knew Kym was gonna try to do all that she could to win for us, for me. I felt good. I don't have any problems with my hands and I knew I could hold her up with lifts and not let her fall."

"I mean, I use my hands for a living. If you remember, when Kym got injured she was not in the air. She was already on the ground. So I felt OK with lifting her, 'cause I had no plans to ever let her fall. And I felt good doing them with her."

On where he'll put the Mirror Ball: "I have a place in my trophy case with my Super Bowl MVP trophy, between my two Lombardis. It's gonna look nice."

It's been a Dancing with the Stars season to remember.

The injuries. The drama. The personal stories that moved us. The moves on the floor that thrilled us. A cast of stars so engaging and evenly matched that the field was as competitive as it was entertaining from the start.

But there could be only one Season 12 champion.

Awaiting the Results

Somewhat surprisingly, given that she was just one point from perfection Monday and seemed like the dark horse to win, Chelsea Kane finished in third place.

That left Kirstie Alley, who ended up with five points less than the other finalists, but has been a fan favorite all season, up against Hines Ward for the crown.

Talk about anyone's game. Anyone willing to wager on this?

And the Season 12 Dancing With the Stars winner was ...

"This is my Super Bowl." - Hines Ward

The one-time MVP of the actual Super Bowl may or may not win Dancing With the Stars tonight, but if he ends up hoisting that Mirror Ball, it won't be a fluke.

Heading into tonight's final results show, Ward is tied with Chelsea Kane with 59 points, meaning it's all coming down to the votes America casts. Will he win?

All bets are off, but he certainly didn't leave anything in the bag last night, finishing his season with a freestyle that mimicked a Super Bowl halftime show.

Seriously, you gotta watch this absurdity. Check it out below, along with the Quickstep Hines and Kym's rocked earlier in the Dancing With the Stars finals ...

All three finalists proved themselves deserving of the Mirror Ball last night.

There can be only one champion of Dancing With the Stars, though, and more than likely, it will come down to one of two couples on this evening's results show.

Monday night's dueling DWTS finale performances involved two categories - a first round of judges' choice and a second round of freestyle dance.

Chelsea Kane aced both with the kind of fierce determination and focus necessary to execute partner Mark Ballas' unconventional choreography.

Kane and Ballas

Her first dance, a samba, had Bruno deeming her an "an ultra sexy bombshell" and commending the "rhythm flowing through your body like I've never seen before."

Chelsea and Mark's second dance, a freestyle Tron-esque number, earned them a 30 to go with the 29 in their salsa, posting a number near impossible to best.

Hines Ward and Kym Johnson felt up to the task, however.

The NFL star donned a top hat for this week's judges' choice in a peppy quick step that ended with a burst of flair and champaigne at the judges' table.

"You make it like you're running for a touchdown and the whole crowd is cheering for you and following you around the ballroom," Carrie Ann said.

Monday on Dancing With the Stars, viewers were shown footage of an event they likely heard about late last week - the fall that left Kym Johnson hospitalized.

It was not easy to watch. But combined with the shots of her in a neck brace, it made her flawless Salsa and Tango routines all the more impressive to watch.

With Kym all slinky and shiny, and with Hines Ward extra attentive and receptive to his partner, it was hard not to get a little emotional after the routines ended.

It's also hard to envision them not coasting into next week's finale. If two perfect scores don't cinch that, Kym's recovery and Hines' back story should do it.

Watch them dance to perfection on last night's show below:

Baltimore Ravens fans aside, how can you not love Hines Ward?

The way the Dancing With the Stars contender makes you smile with his own infectious grin and laughter almost every time he's on screen, it's easy to forget what a tough week he had. Not even being arrested at gunpoint stresses him out.

The Pittsburgh Steelers star was cleared after that misunderstanding, but there's zero mistaking that he is a serious threat to take home the Mirror Ball trophy.

If he has to be cheesy, he'll do what must be done. Win or go home!

Here's Hines and partner Kym Johnson in action last night, smiling all the day to the finals (at least we think so ... it's hard to see him not in the final three):

Pittsburgh Steelers star and Dancing With the Stars frontrunner Hines Ward was in a car that was pulled over by police early this morning in Los Angeles.

Police drew their weapons and handcuffed Ward and the woman was driving driving around 2 a.m., based on reports that the Civic they were in was stolen.

The woman explained that she had reported the car stolen after an incident involving a valet, then forgot to tell the police when later she got the car back.

Officers verified her story and Ward was released. He writes:

Hines and Kym Johnson cut a rug on Dancing With the Stars.

"The incident in the news that involved me getting pulled over. I want everyone to know that this was a complete misunderstanding. The police were just doing their job. Apologies were made and it's now in the past. Moving forward... Hines"

Good to hear. On an unrelated note, think he can win DWTS?
