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?
