He may not have been able to dance his way out of this: TMZ is reporting that this season’s Dancing with the Stars victor Hines Ward was arrested for driving under the influence. Ward was arrested in Dekalb County, GA and held on $1,000 bond. He quickly posted and was released.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver — together with his partner Kym Johnson — edged out Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to win the mirror ball trophy in May on DWTS.

    Well that’s disappointing. Come on, dude, you can be better than that.

        What’s truly disappointing is that EW frames the article as if this guy’s main profession is a dance contestant rather than a superstar athlete.

      It bothers me that so many people like ths “man”.

      This guy cheats on his wife all the time, and he has no problem going after married women.

      He’s an egomaniac and most Pgh no this.

        A good athlete is a good athlete. Who cares about what he does outside the sports world. He can BBQ a litter of puppies and still keep all his fans and probably gain more because it was probably the white man who caused it due to oppressing him and his people for so long.

      • I live in Westmoreland County

        Chris you’re a sad person. I feel sorry for you. You saying an athlete should be able to get away with anything, since they are good at a game.
        Interesting that you used the puppies, giving that Vick went to prison for torturing animals.

      • Lloyd

        I think it’s fairly obvious that Chris was being sarcastic.

      • Zach

        He’s not married!

      • Gilbert

        If chris is being sarcastic, he’s being a sarcastic racist.

      • Matt

        That’s why it’s time to realize that it doesn’t mean sh*t if you’re an athlete; a man devotes his life to catching a ball. That does not deserve our praise, nor our attention.

      • Lisa S

        Matt hates sports now? Who cut off his gonads?

    • PN

      He really made a major misstep when he drove under the influence. And what was he doing in the Atlanta area? Shouldn’t he be getting ready for next fall’s NFL season in Pittsburgh?

      • Lisa S

        THE NFL is locked out you fool. And people are allowed to leave their home cities.
        Of ALL the STUPID possible spins to put on this story.

  • K

    We could have had it aaaaaall….trolling in the deeeeep…

    • Tom

      what trolls

      • Tom

        I love you

    This seems to be the year for athletes getting DUI’s. Honestly, if anyone can afford a limo, a town car, or a taxi, it’s these guys!

    • Carol

      Hines Ward attended the University of Georgia!!

      • Batman

        Burt Ward attended the University of Sidekicks!!

    • Beauty

      Exactly! There’s no excuse.

  • AcaseofGeo

    tsk tsk. Big fan of Hines Ward but this was a dumb thing to do. It’s not the worst thing in the world but drinking and driving puts many people in much more danger than sober driving does.

    • Lisa S

      Captain Obvious.

      • AcaseofGeo

        Thanx for your snide retort. The crux of my post is that I’m a big fan, but even as a big fan, I’m not blind to mistakes people make and the possible tragedy that could happen from it. I was stating how I felt. Lisa S, your last name should have an “AS” in front of your “S”.

      • Aaron

        Lisa S must be one of his skanky ho’s.

  • Dana

    oh Hines you can do better

  • brandon

    Poor guy probably upset about the lockout. As a nfl fan, I know I am. I just refrain from driving while intoxicated. Great wide receiver, I wish him the best.

    • J.Norman

      If the lockout goes very far into the season I suspect that a lot of these NFL guys are going to get busted for a wide range of infractions.
      Many will have a lot of time on their hands and no experience on handling it.

      • Chris

        Hold them in a zoo until the lockout ends.

      • Al

        Enough of them get busted even without the lockout.

    • PN

      I think that might be a factor, the frustration of not getting to practice for next season and the off time becoming a little miserable for Hines. So he might have turned to drinking and driving in this case. I think he posted quietly and was released without letting it get spilled all over the press and the media like some other NFL players. He knows what happened to Michael Vick and doesn’t want that mess to get on to him.

      • Lisa S

        What in the crap are you rambling about? Michael Vick was brought up on serious felony charges. This is a run of the mill DUI case. What do you mean “he knows what happened”. You don’t get to control how much the media latches onto something. Grow up, douchetrain.

  • J

    Why does it seem like DUI’s are just parking tickets now? Celebs just pay it off and that’s it? What a message to send to fans.

    • TV Mom

      Yeah, parking tickets to the celebrties. To you and I, it’s a long battle back for a reinstated license.

      • Anon.

        Very true. If you’re an average Joe without a super-duper lawyer, you might NEVER get your license back in some jurisdictions, no matter how many years it’s been or how clean your record’s been since the DUI.

      • Lisa S

        We WISH they’d take drunks off the road.
        Name ANY jurisdication that is that strict. You can’t. Because you made it up. Counterproductive jackhole.

      • KC

        Wow, Lisa S, you’re just a little ray of sunshine, aren’t you?

  • Lizzy

    As a resident of DeKalb county, I would appreciate it if he would pull his head out of his you-know-where and not put my or my child’s life at risk. Putz.

  • Dumbledore Fluffernutter

    Hines Ward is an (expletive deleted). This doesn’t surprise me. I hope Steelers fans are proud.

    • Becky

      Seriously, everyone makes mistakes. I’m not excusing what he did, but you’re out of control. There’s absolutely no reason to post something as ignorant as you did.

      • Lisa S

        Seriousy, you’re insane. How many innocent deaths will it take before you apologists shut your holes?

      • AcaseofGeo

        Lisa S, you’re belligerent snide remarks on everyone’s posts make you appear to be everything you’re b*tching about. Go read a different article about your favorite nail polish or something.

  • Dot

    Just call a cab.

  • Joe G.

    ANYONE caught DUI should permanently have his license revoked…period. Maybe that would make people stop and think before doing something as stupid as getting behind the wheel after drinking or drugging. We should have zero tolerance for this crime.

  • Concealo weapono

    Gotta hand it those pittsburgh steelers, they really know how to stay out of trouble! Aint that right tim rapistberger?

    • Lisa S

      It’s BEN Rapistberger.

      TIM is the one that got caught at the donkey shows in Tijuana.

    Oh,Hiney, what’s your mother gonna say
