Hines Ward held at gunpoint by LAPD

By Finesse

TMZ may be the best news organization in the world.  They have reported that early this morning, Hines Ward removed from a Honda Civic at gunpoint (along with an unidentified "female driver") and cuffed in what appears to be a misunderstanding about a stolen car.  Apparently, Ward is very understanding of the situation, but nonetheless is planning on filing a grievance with the police commissioner to complain that he was only a 3rd round pick.

The TMZ report:
Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Hines Ward was removed from a vehicle at gunpoint by LAPD officers and placed in handcuffs this morning in L.A. -- but he was NOT arrested ... TMZ has learned.

The "Dancing with the Stars" contestant was a passenger in a Honda Civic around 2 AM ... when LAPD officers flipped on their lights and sirens and pulled the car over.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops had run the license plate and noticed the car had been reported stolen. We're told police drew their weapons ... and ordered both Hines and the female driver out of the car and placed them both in handcuffs.

The female driver then explained ... SHE was the person who reported the car stolen in the first place after an incident involving a valet. But she got her car back ... and forgot to tell cops to call off the alert.

We're told the officers verified her story -- and eventually let both Hines and the driver leave without further incident. Law enforcement sources tell us Hines was VERY cooperative and understanding about the situation.


  1. Way to go Hines!

    Let’s see how many ideas we can come up with as to why Hines was EVEN IN A CAR AT 2:00AM in the next 20 seconds (Daniel tosh style)

    1.) It’s obvious he felt that Big Ben was no longer holding up his end of the "offseason issues" bargain?

    2.) Maybe, he thought he lost the giant chip he usually carries around on his shoulder and was in such a panic to find it he didn't care whether the car was reported stolen.

    3.) ....A half black athlete and an unidentified female in a reported stolen car at 2:00AM? Pfffttt Why would anyone pay attention to that?

    4.) Was Santonio Holmes in the car too with glazed eyes and pot sitting in the cup holder?…… cause that would explain a lot.

    5.) They were ride with Kristie Allie but she had just robbed a grocery store and no one else could get in the car.

  2. David,

    You're the first nominee for "comment of the year" on GTOG for 2011.
