Ray Rice jabs Hines Ward about his DUI

Don't count Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice(notes) among those who were disheartened at the news of Hines Ward being arrested for driving under the influence over the weekend. You can even feel a little bit of glee in Rice's tweet about the incident.

Ray Rice jabs Hines Ward about his DUI

It's true that a DUI charge is not a good look, even if you've got your manager telling everyone that you were not, in fact, impaired by alcohol.

I doubt that Rice is right when he speculates that Ward will be suspended, though. Suspensions are generally for repeat offenders, so while I can't say it'd shock me if Roger Goodell hit Ward with a one-game suspension out of nowhere, I don't think it's likely, either.

The Steelers are scheduled to play the Ravens in Week 1.

Steelers safety Ryan Clark(notes) interjected after Rice's tweet, which led to this back-and-forth, which I'll just cut and paste and de-Twitterfy for you. Everything is sic'd.

Ray Rice: Well it looks like Hines Ward(notes) will miss week 1 when the lockout ends DUI charge not a good look

Ryan Clark: So glad you could Weigh in.Thx

Ray Rice: it's whatever u wanna do bro you know how to find me

Ryan Clark: I hear ya brother.Thought we were all better than that. Wouldnt speak negative of you. I'll find you!It's not hard. God bless

I'll rank this exchange somewhere around 6,829th on the list of why Ravens/Steelers games are compelling. Nice try, though, fellas.
