Hines Ward Police Report -- 'Strong Odor' of Alcohol

7/11/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hines Ward blew a .128 early Saturday morning -- and officers noticed "a strong odor" of alcohol coming from him, a flush face, and blood shot eyes ... this according to the police report. 

Hines Ward Mug Shot

According to the DeKalb County Police report, the officer spotted Ward's Aston Martin driving erratically -- which Ward told the officer was because he had dropped his phone. 

An officer gave Hines a "follow my finger" field sobriety test -- during which the officer says Ward lacked "smooth pursuit" and suffered from nystagmus (fancy word for involuntary eye movement).

The officer says Ward also had a hard time keeping his balance during a "walk and turn evaluation."

The report says Ward agreed to take a breathalyzer ... blew .128 -- the legal limit is .08 -- and was arrested for DUI. DeKalb authorities tell us the .128 was an unofficial reading that is not admissible in court -- and Ward refused to take a second, official test.

According to the report, Ward admitted drinking 2 Coronas ... three hours before he was pulled over -- however, he maintains he was not drunk at the time of his arrest.

Nobody is ever going to admit they feel drunk after two beers...
but the .128 tells a different story.

IN MY OPINION    

I hope he took a blood test in addition to the field test and breathalyzer.

That's a really nice car he drives. I saw him a week early at Best Buy in Ga. The road he was going down that night is going toward his home. I hope he gets some help.

Oh what a shame. I like Hines. Get it together. This is his second time, or maybe his third time, being pulled over for DUI. If you're going to drink any type of alcohol get a designated driver or take a cab. You will be saving your life as well as others.

I don't know why, but I believe him. He's never given anyone a reason not to trust him...but you can't get around the breathalyzer results, unless they were a false-positive.

On the other hand, he may not feel the effects of a few beers, but it's still in your system.

Good luck getting this one sorted out!

First of all how stupid are these people. Aston Martin!!! right off the bat BIG TIME BULLSEYE TARGET. Like that won't stand out.

You wan't to go out take an everyday car. Don't get drunk, but don't give the police a reason to pull you over.

Well, it looks like they brought down the hammer on Hines and he got busted. The reading, if correct, proves that he was under the influence of alcohol. And here I thought this guy was someone special...

So disappointing. Just the other day I commented to a friend about Hines in that it's so nice to see a professional athlete that's a good role model.
So much for that.
