    Hines Ward

    Just a couple of months after snagging that coveted mirror-ball trophy, Hines Ward has landed in hot water.

    DCPD booked Ward at 3:41 a.m., and he was released after posting $1,300 bond.

    No further details were given on the circumstances behind the 35-year-old footballer's arrest.

    This is the second time this year Ward has had a run-in with the cops.

    In a case of mistaken identity, Ward was handcuffed in May (before he won the DWTS title with partner Kym Johnson) at gunpoint during a traffic stop in Los Angeles after police mistook his car for a stolen vehicle.
