Ex-Patriot Albert Haynesworth Pleads Guilty To Reckless Boating

Albert Haynesworth won’t be back out on the water for a while.

The former NFL defensive tackle pleaded guilty to a reckless boating charge Tuesday in Knoxville, Tenn., the Tennessean reported. The two-time Pro Bowl pick and former New England Patriot faced five total charges at his arraignment, including violations of Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency laws and operating a vessel without an identification number, but he was only found guilty of the one.

The charge resulted in a five-month loss of boating privileges for Haynesworth, as well as court costs and fees.

Haynesworth has a checkered past that dates to his playing days with the Tennessee Titans, who selected him 15th overall in the 2002 NFL draft. The 33-year-old last appeared in a game in 2011, suiting up for seven games with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and recording 20 tackles. He also played in six games with the Patriots that season and made three tackles.
