Surveillance Video In Ward Incident Posted Online

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Surveillance video has been released following an incident earlier this week in Los Angeles involving Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward.

Entertainment news website TMZ posted the video on Saturday.

Police in Los Angeles reportedly handcuffed the Steelers star and an unidentified woman at gunpoint in the overnight hours of May 5.

But Ward said the whole situation was all just a misunderstanding.

The woman reported the car stolen, but never told police she had found it.

Police reportedly confronted the pair, ordered them out of the car, and then handcuffed Ward and his female companion. Police say the two cooperated and were eventually let go without being arrested.

Following the incident, Ward posted a message to his fans on Facebook.

He wrote: “To my fans, 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.”

    No big deal, So drop it allready. Hines did nothing wrong, So why drag out the story.

  2. Beacons says:

    I agree with prior poster. This is a nonstory. Isn’t there any real news out there? Or how about [GASP] doing some original investigative reporting on a topic of real interest?

  3. D. Evans says:

    Goes to show you what kind of Man Hines ward is. Someone else would be making a big deal out of it. Give the Man credit for all his actions as a pro and personnal actions he shows. And for the Officers that stoped him, even the Ref’s have to pick up the yellow flag on a blown call.

    The matter is quashed either drop it or admit you want to know who the lady friend is. Hope Hines wins the mirror ball.

    I didn’t notice the stupid ass grin on his face? did he poop his pants as soon as the “berries and cheeries” lit up?

  7. Christine says:

    This is typical media attempting to sensationalize a situation that doesn’t exist. Must be a slow news day! I think the media and the person who fed this information to the media owes Hines Ward a HUGE, public apology.

  8. Over Blown says:

    Marty Griffin is reporting his sources have confirmed Jane Orie was in the car with Hines, film at 11

  9. Jeff Reed says:

    Everybody knows Marty is a pea brain
