Steelers/NFL Videos

Saturday, July 16, 2011
 

Steelers receiver Hines Ward said Friday he is leaving his DUI arrest in Georgia in his attorney's hands and thanked fans for their support during the past week.

Ward made his first public comments about his arrest on his Facebook page .

"Fans — I appreciate all the love and support," Ward wrote. "Thank you! It means a lot to me. I have a great respect for the legal system and am leaving things in the hands of my attorney. I can't wait for football. I've been working out hard. I want to get back to the big show again this year. We have some unfinished business to take care of. So we will be ready to go when we are given the Green light. Here we go!"

Police in DeKalb County, Ga., stopped Ward, 35, early last Saturday morning after watching his Aston Martin swerve and hit a curb.

According to the police report, Ward's blood-alcohol level was .128. The legal limit in Georgia is .80.

Ward's business manager, Andrew Ree, released a statement last week saying his client "was not impaired by alcohol while driving."
