American footballer and Dancing With The Stars contestant Hines Ward was handcuffed at gunpoint by police early this morning after a mix-up over a reportedly stolen car.

The sportsman and a female friend had just left a restaurant in North Hollywood when they were pulled over by cops investigating a complaint about a missing vehicle. They were ordered out of the car and Hines was cuffed by armed officers until the woman managed to prove the vehicle was hers.

It subsequently emerged Ward's companion, whose identity has not been released, had filed a stolen car complaint last month, but had failed to notify authorities after relocating it. Sergeant Maria Morrison says, "She had gone somewhere, misparked it, reported it stolen and found it later."

Ward, who plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and his professional dancing partner Kym Johnson have made it to the final six couples on the reality TV show.
