Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward was arrested at gunpoint and handcuffed on Thursday morning because the car he has driving had been reported stolen—by the woman in the passenger seat. Yup, according to reports Ward and his lady friend were driving in North Hollywood, California, around 1:30 a.m. when police officers pulled over the car, which had been reported stolen by the woman on April 19. Turns out she simply forgot where she parked it. The other thing she forgot? To call the police and tell them to cancel that stolen car report.
Ward and the woman were released after she was able to prove the car was hers. Ward cooperated with police while he was detained, police said. According to ESPN.com, the woman is not Ward’s partner from “Dancing With the Stars.”
