(The Spread) – Here’s something you wouldn’t expect to read everyday: Hines Ward detained at gunpoint.
Ward was reportedly pulled over and removed from his vehicle at gunpoint by police officers in L.A. at around 2:00AM Thursday morning. He was the passenger in a Honda Civic that was reported stolen.
The driver of the car was female and both passengers excited the car at the request of the police, who had drawn their weapons. The female explained that she was the one that reported the car stolen after a mix-up with a valet service. The situation was ironed out and both the female driver and Ward were eventually allowed to drive off without their being an arrest.
Following the incident, Ward released this statement on his Facebook page:
“The incident in the news that involved me getting pulled over. I want everyone to know that this was a complete misunderstanding. The police were just doing their job. Apologies were made and it's now in the past. Moving forward...Hines”
