Atlantan and UGA grad Hines Ward gets probation for DUI

Steelers-Ward-willing-to-restructure-deal-NNVTEAK-x-largePittsburgh Steeler and Atlanta resident Hines Ward has received a one-year probation after he was arrested last summer in DeKalb County for a DUI.

I’m seeking comment from his manager Andrew Ree.

Ward on July 9 was pulled over after police said they saw his Aston Martin weaving. The plea deal means Ward will receive 12 months probation, pay $2,000 in fines and court costs and will serve 80 hours of community service. TMZ broke the story this morning.  My colleague Marcus Garner wrote a local version here.

Ward, who just finished his 14th year with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a wide receiver, is a University of Georgia graduate and won “Dancing With the Stars” last year.

I wonder if Hines did a celebration dance. He is known to do it in the NFL after rather routine catches.
