NFL star wide-out escorted from a female’s car at gunpoint. What now for the Pittsburgh Steelers?
At 1:30 a.m Hines Ward was allegedly a passenger in a woman’s car that got pulled over by Los Angeles police.
Hines and a woman friend were stopped in North Hollywood on their way home from a restaurant because she had reported the car stolen.
Sgt. Maria Morrison, who was involved in the case stated, “She had gone some where, misparked it, reported it stolen and found it later,” but failed to cancel the police report.
Ward was supposedly held at gunpoint by police for only a few moments, but he was released without being arrested, police said.
However, the two weren’t able to be released until the woman was able to prove the car was hers.
The Steelers’ organization have been experiencing issues with holding th eir players back from the media this week.
Starting running back Rashard Mendenhall just came off the best year of his career in the previous football season, but has been staring in the media by comparing the NFL players to slaves along with criticizing those who celebrate Osama bin Laden’s death.
According to USAToday, some other Steelers continued to distance themselves from Rashard Mendenhall.
The organization has yet to be interviewed over the Ward incident.
