Surveillance Video: Steelers Star Hines Ward Cuffed at Gunpoint

On Thursday, The Blaze reported that Steelers star wide receiver-turned-'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Hines Ward was detained at gunpoint in Studio City, CA in a stolen car mix-up.

Now, we have surveillance video of how the incident went down.

TMZ, who broke the original story, reports:

The video clearly shows the female driver of a Honda Civic pulling into a gas station in Studio City, CA followed by a police car. The woman emerges from the vehicle and complies with the cops ...laying face first on the ground as officers ordered Ward out of the car.

Ward -- who was described as "cooperative" -- kept his hands in the air during the incident and followed orders until cops placed him in handcuffs.

After Hines was taken into custody, two cops approached the passenger side of the car with their guns drawn and took a closer look inside the vehicle. But they both quickly holstered their weapons once they realized nobody else was inside.

According to police, the driver reported the vehicle stolen on April 19 after forgetting where she had parked it. She later found it but never canceled the report.
