Hines Ward Responds To DUI Arrest

Hines Ward was arrested for DUI in Georgia early Saturday morning, and his camp is already speaking out on the star Steeler wideout's situation. TMZ.com talked to the recent "Dancing With The Stars" winner's manager, and he had this to say about the incident.

Ward's manager, Andrew Ree, tells TMZ, "He cooperated fully with the police and truthfully answered all of their questions. We are currently in the process of ascertaining all the facts. From our preliminary investigation we can tell you that we are confident that the facts will show that Hines was NOT impaired by alcohol while driving."

He went on to say, "However, Hines is deeply saddened by this incident and apologizes to his fans and the Steelers organization for this distraction."

"NOT impaired" certainly leaves some wiggle room for Ward and his people as this investigation moves forward. For now, though, all anyone can really do is sit and wait for the legal system to play itself out.
