Hines Ward reportedly busted for DUI

This isn’t how Hines Ward wants to end a successful offseason.

The reigning king of ABC’s hit show “Dancing With the Stars” has been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in DeKalb County, Ga., according to TMZ.com. The Web site shows a mug shot of Ward it says is his booking photo. The arrest reportedly happened this morning and Ward was being held on $1,000 bond. He was released.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver, who was the MVP of Super Bowl XL, is a former star at the University of Georgia. He’s got a strong public image and this could no doubt put a ding in it.
