Hines Ward Says He's 'Over' Incident With Police


It's been almost a week since "Dancing with the Stars" contestant and Pittsburgh Steelers player Hines Ward was stopped by police and handcuffed at gunpoint, but a forgiving Ward is trying to move on from what he calls a "non-story," and get back to life as usual.

When ET's Mark Steines addressed Hines with concern over last Thursday's incident, he was quick to dismiss it a "non-story that made headlines." Hines says he is "over it," quite simply because he "didn't do anything wrong."

Fellow contestants and dancers made light of the situation, most of whom hadn't seen the recently released police surveillance footage, and got a good kick out of the idea of Hines getting into any trouble in the first place.

Chelsea Kane admits she hasn't seen the surveillance video, but laughed at the thought of "teddy bear" Hines emerging from his vehicle at gunpoint with a big smile on his face.

Chelsie Hightower and Romeo say they haven't seen the video either, and also succumbed to laughter imagining the scene as Hines takes a handcuffing from the police with a smile. Romeo adds playfully that Hines probably made the incident look like a "Colgate commercial."

Play the video to hear what Karina Smirnoff, Ralph Macchio, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had to say about Ward's run in with the police.

Watch an all new "Dancing with the Stars," tonight on ABC.
