More Hines Ward details emerge

Atlanta police have released additional details on the recent arrest of Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward.

According to the police report, Ward failed a sobriety test and at one point hit a curb with his Aston Martin vehicle. On Saturday a representative denied Ward was drunk through a statement.

This will certainly catch the attention of the NFL. Expect the league to look into this case, along with the arrest of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones, once a new collective bargaining agreement is reached. But this is the first brush with the law for Ward, which definitely helps his case.
