In a statement released to the media, Andrew Ree, an attorney and marketing agent for Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, said that his client apologizes for being arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia last night, but denies being under the influence of alcohol.

“On July 9th Hines Ward was stopped by Dekalb Co. [Georgia] police for suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence. He cooperated fully with the police and truthfully answered all of their questions. We are currently in the process of ascertaining all the facts.
