Dance Show Contestant Hines Ward Sees Nothing Newsworthy About Getting Cuffed At Gunpoint Today

Hines Ward, who guest blogs about Dancing With The Stars for the Los Angeles Times, was driving home from a late dinner through North Hollywood early this morning when he "was briefly detained at gunpoint in a mix-up over a reported stolen car." Seems as if his ladyfriend (or friend who happens to be a lady) told police that that very car stolen a couple weeks back and, well, D.W.Half.B. in L.A. and all that.

Ward told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen in a text message that it was all a misunderstanding.

"There's not a story. It was a misunderstanding and the police apologized to me. I didn't get arrested. I don't have a reaction to a non story," he wrote.

That's all well and good, but we've only heard one side.
