Pittsburg Steelers star football player and recent “Dancing With The Stars” champion, Hines Ward, was arrested for DUI early this morning. Hines released a statement saying he is sorry to his fans and the team for this distraction. However, he did not admit guilt and his attorney’s say they will prove he was not impaired by alcohol while driving.
While many are quick to “judge” people who get caught drinking and driving, it could happen to anyone. As much as people don’t like to admit it, many have been to a bar or club and after several drinks still got behind the wheel. It seems like DUI’s are only an issue in the sports and hollywood arena, but it also frequently happens to everyday people, they just don’t make the news.
We all know that drinking too much alcohol and getting behind the wheel is extremely dangerous. But we should look within, before we judge those who are caught. How many times have you had several drinks and drove home?
The bottom line, if you’re going to drink, the safest route is to have a designated driver with you.
