Ward pleads guilty to reckless driving
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward entered a guilty plea to a charge of reckless driving and no contest to charge of failure to maintain his lane, stemming from an arrest last summer on a DUI charge in Decatur, Ga.
In exchange for those pleas, says the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the DUI charge has been dropped.
"We are grateful for the outcome," said Andrew Ree, Ward's attorney, who also serves as his manager. "Hines has always maintained that his ability to drive was in no way impaired and we are pleased that the facts support his innocence. ... Hines has a great respect for the legal system and is also grateful in particular to the state for the professional manner in which they handled this matter."
