Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward is one of the most well-respected players in the NFL. But his reputation may deserve to take a serious hit.

TMZ is reporting that Ward was arrested this morning for driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to the report, Ward was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia, and held on $1,000 bond. He posted bond shortly after the arrest and was released.

Ward, the reigning Dancing With the Stars champion, grew up in Georgia, went to school there and frequently spends time there during the offseason.
