Hines Ward -- I Thought I Was Being Punk'd!

5/8/2011 8:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hines Ward isn't upset with the LAPD for mistaking him for a car thief -- in fact, he thought the whole thing was a joke when it was going down!

As TMZ first reported, Hines had a run-in with cops early Thursday morning after a mix-up with a car being reported stolen. Hines released a statement after the incident saying things were all good -- and when we spotted him out last night with "Dancing" partner Kym Johnson, he told our guy, "I actually thought I was on 'Punk'd' ... Something about guns pointed at me wasn't very fun."

If Hines wants to check out the video ... we got it for him right here.

He's certainly being understanding... getting guns drawn on you like that ... you'd think the police might, you know, do something smart and run the plates before hauling people out of a car they thought 'might' be a stolen car. Sounds like a bunch of BS to me.

Sonja, the car WAS reported stolen by the female that was with him because she couldn't locate it. Later, she found her car she failed to notify the police of the fact that she recovered it. The police weren't the ones who failed act responsibly,the owner of the car is.

And yes, Hines is class act. You can just tell by looking at him he is a decent and benevolent man.

Looks to me it's time to replace that ditzy hag of a girlfriend you've got there my friend. Who calls the Police to report a missing car and don't phone them back when they "find' it?... lol.

Next time, the LAPD won't be so "ethical" when they pull over a black occupant.

Love him! He needs to drop the girl whose car he was riding in that night. Anyone so flakey they cannot even call the cops when the car is found and cancel the stolen report should not be driving someone like Hines around town - or anyone else for that matter. The cops should charge her fees for the additional work they had to do - duh!

lol dumb asses. Why is it always some neo conservative racist prick spouting hate in these comments? No matter the story, there's never a lack of Bigots in the comment section. Hey R-Tard...it's 2011, not 1950.
