Hines Ward nabbed and cuffed at gunpoint by LAPD a true rumor?
Hines Ward, former NFL star and one of the top contenders on the 2011 season of Dancing with the Stars was nabbed by cops while filling up at a gas station in Studio City, CA, according to TMZ. Cops had their guns drawn as they approached the vehicle being driven by a female, who was ordered out of the car and made to lie face down on the pavement.
Hines Ward then was ordered out of the car. Ward was cooperative, say police, and, following questioning, learned that the car had been reported stolen. The cops continued their search, guns still drawn, as they investigated the passenger side, only to discover no one else was in the car, before they put their weapons away. It all turned out to be a mistake, though. The cops apparently had an outdated report of a stolen vehicle that matched the description of the car driven by the female driver. Both Ward and the female driver were released without further incident.
Given the notoriety of some of LAPD’s officers, especially with the history of the LA riots and the Rodney King incident, is Hines Ward upset about the incident? No, he says. “The police were just doing their job. Apologies were made, and it’s now in the past. Moving forward,” he said. What a classy guy. No wonder he’s doing so well on Dancing with the Stars this season.
Star celeb Hines Ward is paired with dancing pro Kym Johnson on Dancing with the Stars. Both dancers have been doing exceptionally well this season, getting consistently high marks from the judges. Chances are the pair will make it into the top three, and maybe beyond, but there is speculation about whether Hines Ward has what it takes to ultimately win the conest.
You can stay tuned to ABC on Mondays and Tuesdays to watch Hines Ward and Kym Johnson and see how far they can go.
