Hines Ward DUI Police Report Released

A police report from Steelers receiver Hines Ward’s DUI arrest has been released, WPXI says. Atlanta police tailed Ward for four miles before they pulled him over, at which point police administered five sobriety tests. One of those indicated that he has a blood-alcohol content of .128, much higher than the legal limit of .08. They did not impound his car because he had a passenger who was sober and therefore could drive it legally.

Again, Ward is innocent until proven guilty. But this all seems pretty straightforward. The police gave Ward five tests and determined that he was drunk. At least one test showed him to be way over the limit. We’ll see how this turns out, but at this point, Ward’s agent’s statement that Ward “was not impaired by alcohol while driving” seems to be untrue. We’ve yet to hear from Ward himself on this. Unless there’s some crucial detail that hasn’t yet come to light, it seems like the best way to deal with it at this point is for him to just admit it and apologize.

Thanks to Steelers Depot.
