Pittsburgh Steeler's Wide Receiver and Dancing With The Stars' Contestant Hines Ward was pulled over while riding passenger with a lady friend earlier this morning. Police said they had received a call that the Honda Civic they were rolling in was reported stolen earlier.

The car was his lady friends and she explained to the officers that she had a valet issue earlier where she then reported the car stolen. But once the car was returned she never called to cancel the alert. Thus the pulling over of the Civic. Now I'm not one person to tell people how to spend their money, but I do find it kind of funny that she was rolling in a Honda Civic which is cool, but I know for a fact that he has a few different cars that they could have rolled in that would have been a smoother ride! lol... I mean I guess if he wanted to be "low key" and not be spotted, that was the way to to. Nobody would have expected to see a Super Bowl Champ and MVP rolling in the little Civic.The Police let them go once everything was cleared...

Hines posted a reply on his twitter account
