Hey! A celebrity was finally kind of, sort of punished for breaking the law and putting other lives in jeopardy!
Just kidding, but what else is new?
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward was arrested for a DUI in Georgia last July after cops pulled him over for driving pretty recklessly.
The wasted NFL player was apparently swerving in and out of his lane, then hit a curb before being pulled over and eventually charged.
Well, he's not going to jail, but he's been sentenced to 12 months of probation, plus 80 hours of community service as part of a plea deal in which he pled guilty to reckless driving to get the DUI charge dropped.
He's also gotta pay $2,000 in fines and court costs, but that's the easy part for celebs. What about his license? That should be the first thing to go when ANYBODY gets caught driving under the influence!
Does anyone else feel a little uneasy that prosecutors agreed to drop the DUI charge entirely? If Georgia is that lax about driving drunk, we're not sure we want to risk our lives on those roads!
