Ward's manager, Andrew Ree, tells TMZ, "He cooperated fully with the police and truthfully answered all of their questions. We are currently in the process of ascertaining all the facts. From our preliminary investigation we can tell you that we are confident that the facts will show that Hines was NOT impaired by alcohol while driving."

He went on to say, "However, Hines is deeply saddened by this incident and apologizes to his fans and the Steelers organization for this distraction."

Wasn't Christina Aguilera's boyfriend arrested for a DUI but then later the charges were dropped? I think what he's saying is possible...maybe he refused a breathalyzer? Dunno...but I like Hines and wish him luck either way.

Over zealous cops. I can relate. I was a designated driver when I was younger & was arrested for DUI & other bogus charges. It was later proven that I was as sober as a judge as we drove my drunk friend's car through that one-horse town. I hope he proves he was arrested under false charges.

I love it when the say to wait for all the facts to come out. That never happens in their favor. I really don't have any patience with lying.
