‘DWTS’ Champion Hines Ward Busted for DUI.
‘Dancing With the Stars’ champion and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was busted for driving under the influence early Saturday morning.
According to TMZ, Ward was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia — not too far from his home in Sandy Springs. He was held on $1,000 bond, which he paid, and has since been released. No other details were immediately available.
Ward competed on the most recent season of ‘DWTS’ along with Kendra Wilkinson, Kirstie Alley and Ralph Macchio.
The finale came down to Ward and Alley, with Ward taking home the trophy with dance pro Kym Johnson.
“When I started in this competition, I never thought I’d be in the finals,” Ward said after his victory. “I owe it all to Kym. She’s been an amazing teacher. I also want to thank all the fans.”
