Ravens RB Ray Rice Takes Shot at Steelers WR Hines Ward Over Arrest; Ryan Clark Comes to Ward’s Defense

As if the Ravens have anything to be proud about when it comes to the police blotter – Ray Rice has decided to take a shot at Steelers WR Hines Ward over his recent arrest.

Ward was arrested Saturday and charged with a DUI, though he is fighting the charges and TMZ.com reported that those that saw him said he wasn’t drunk at all.

Rice though, maybe trying to overcome his insecurity over fumbling in the AFC Divisional Playoff loss last year to the Steelers, took to hiding behind Twitter to post the following Sunday:

Well it looks like Hines Ward will miss week 1 when the lockout ends DUI charge not a good look


First of all, nothing has been proven yet, and with Ward never having had any issues in the league, and fighting the charges, it’s not a given that any type of suspension is coming at all.

“Not a good look”? Maybe fumbling a playoff game is not a good look either Ray.

After Rice posted the comments, Steelers safety Ryan Clark must have gotten wind of the situation, coming to the defense of the future Hall of Fame WR.

“@RayRice27: Well it looks like Hines Ward will miss week 1 when the lockout ends DUI charge not a good look”So glad you could Weigh in.Thx”

To which Rice came back: “@RealRClark25 it’s whatever u wanna do bro you know how to find me”

Uh, ok, so Rice is calling out Clark? Maybe he should ask Willis McGahee how getting laid out feels. Anyway, here’s Clark’s comeback.

“@RayRice27 I hear ya brother.Thought we were all better than that. Wouldnt speak negative of you. I’ll find you!It’s not hard. God bless.”

Which basically means Rice – opening day there’s a hit coming, and you had better look out. It’s good to see Clark, who more and more is a leader on this team taking up for his teammate. As for Rice, maybe he should focus more on holding on to the ball then taking to Twitter to deal with his on field battles.

    Mr. Rice is correct when he says the DUI charge isn’t a good look but i think it’s a far lesser evil then his team mate Ray Lewis was charged with murder a few years back,but he got away with murder just like an other famous former football player….won’t mention any names but here’s a hint….he’s in vegas,no not gambling but sitting in county Jail for robbery.

    #1 One fumble in the entire 2010 season – Ryan Clark is a sub-par safety with one highlight in is whole career. not to mention he knocked himself out too with that hit. — I love how steelers are jumping to his defense. Okay here’s the facts:


    -Bloodshot eyes
    -Watery eyes
    -Strong odor of alcohol
    -Swayed when walked
    -Failed all eye nystagmus tests
    -7 “clues” in field test including: sways while balancing, uses arms for balance, does not touch heel to toe x2, steps off line, improper turn
    (insert DWTS joke here)
    -recited alphabet from d to x and omitted and missed letters.
    -“alcosensorFST” .128 reading (??)
    -Refused a breath sample

    Not so quick to jump to his defense with the FACTS huh?
