LOS ANGELES (AP)—Los Angeles police say Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Hines Ward(notes) was briefly detained at gunpoint in a mix-up over a reported stolen car but has been released.

Sgt. Maria Morrison says Hines and a woman friend were stopped in her car at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday in North Hollywood because the woman had reported it stolen.

Morrison says Hines was taken from the car at gunpoint and handcuffed until the woman proved the car was hers. The sergeant says the driver reported the vehicle stolen on April 19 after forgetting where she had parked it. She later found it but never canceled the report.

Police say Hines was cooperative. The woman’s name wasn’t released, but she isn’t Hines’ partner on “Dancing With the Stars.”

I know it was a mistake and all, but this is just giving the Steelers more bad publicity. As a fan I'm very frustrated about it.

I can see the humor in this but I'm sure Hines wasn't laughing at the time. Probably scared the shit out of him.

The only thing that scares me about this is that Hines is running with a chick that is so drunk/stoned that she lost her frickin' CAR & so lazy that she decided to let the cops find it for her.

Don't take her back to the hotel Hines, please. It can only end badly.

Lol. I'm with you, brother. Cops, guns, and handcuffs = date over.

Well it's been fun. I'll just catch a cab from here. I'll call you.:eek:

non-story. I don't know why he was in cuffs, though, seems over-zealous...

lot of wannabe badass cops want to make a name for themselves by arresting a celeb or someone high profile like that.

What do you expect from anyone who lives in Hollywood..."I forgot where my car is, its stolen. Oh, shit I forget to tell you it was in my garage."

1. How does this give the Steelers bad publicity?

2. What percentage of football fans or sports fans in general give a sh@t when things happen like dui's or other minor offenses? Only the fans of rivals or people who don't like a particular team for whatever reason jump on this kind of thing. Anyone who condemns a whole team or city for the actions of a few players is just not thinking rationally.

I hope he left her alone for good because i've never heard of a sober person report their car stolen because they forgot where they parked it. She should've been cuffed for being "special".
