New details have emerged in the early Saturday morning traffic stop that lead to the arrest of Steelers receiver Hines Ward for suspicion of DUI.
Rich Walsh of WPXI reports that Ward didn’t drive his car into a curb, as originally reported and that he was followed by an Atlanta Transit Police officer for four miles before he was pulled over and charged with driving under the influence. Walsh then says that the Transit officer then called in the Dekalb County Police and they administered three portable Breathalyzer tests and that the results of those tests and the blood alcohol level have not yet been released.
The police report of the traffic stop and arrest were supposed to be filed within 24 hours according to Walsh and it has yet to be released as of 2 p.m. Monday. The officers originally told the the Atlanta Journal Constitution that Ward had failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer test.
It seems that there is quite the differences in stories thus far and perhaps the Dekalb County Police will clarify the test results, if indeed they were administered as Walsh is reporting, sometime today. Perhaps the charge will be dropped altogether and Ward will have his name cleared in full to the charge of DUI.
