Pittsburgh Steelers star Hines Ward was removed from a car at gunpoint by LAPD early Thursday morning, TMZ reports.
The Dancing with the Stars contestant was a passenger in a Honda Civic when law enforcement pulled the vehicle over. Apparently, when the license plate was run, cops noticed the car was reported stolen! Officials pulled their weapons and ordered Hines and a female driver out to handcuff them.
The woman said she was the one who reported the car stolen in the first place and simply forgot to call off the alert once she got it back. Her story was verified and she and Hines (who was very cooperative) left the scene.
