Albert Haynesworth Charged With Misdemeanor Sexual Abuse Stemming From February Incident


Albert Haynesworth got some more bad news on Tuesday.

The Washington Redskins defensive lineman was charged with misdemeanor sexual abuse for allegedly fondling the breast of his waitress in a downtown Washington hotel restaurant.

The U.S. attorney's office is reporting that the government's evidence shows the two-time All-Pro sliding a credit card down the front of the server's dress, touching her breast.

An indictment was given by a grand dury officially charging the 29-year-old Haynesworth over the alleged Feb. 13 incident. If convicted, Haynesworth faces up to six months in jail and $1,000 fine.

Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, originally denied the allegations, insisting that there was "no truth" behind them.

This is not the only incident Haynesworth has been involved in as of late. He also faces charges in Virginia for allegedly assaulting a man because of road-rage. That trial is set for May. Haynesworth has also been involved in lawsuits stemming from a bank, an exotic dancer, a man injured in a car accident and allegations that he failed to help pay for his wife's health insurance or their children's bills. And that all happened last summer.

The man seems to have a temper. He has consistently fought with coach Mike Shanahan, skipped workouts and failed a conditioning test at during training camp. Haynesworth was suspended without pay for the final four games of last season for "conduct detrimental to the club."

Haynesworth is in his second year of a seven-year, $100 million contract, but he is expected to be traded or released by the Redskins.
