In a statement, Ward's attorney, Andrew Ree, said, "From our preliminary investigation we can tell you that we are  confident that the facts will show that Hines was NOT impaired by  alcohol while driving. However, Hines is deeply saddened by  this incident and apologizes to his fans and the Steelers organization  for this distraction."
