Hines Ward Was The Target Of A Foiled Extortion Plot
Hines Ward, it appears, is the latest victim. Via ESPN:
"Allegheny County prosecutors say 26-year-old Joshua Van Auker was arrested Thursday after trying to extort the money through one of Ward's personal assistants. They say Van Auker threatened to release information alleging Ward had paid women for sex.
An affidavit says the assistant gave Van Auker money provided by law enforcement."
He probably should have warned the assistant not to involve law enforcement, lest his most likely fake photos hit the interwebs. And you'd think he'd demand more than $15,000 - Ward made NFL money for 14 years.
