Good gracious! This guy can’t stay out of trouble or keep his name out of scandalous headlines! His most recent eff up with a waitress at a hotel in DC left him with a sexual abuse charge. If he’s convicted, he could do six months jail time and be fined up to a thousand dollars. Meanwhile in Virginia, he’s facing assault charges for a road-rage incident in which he punched a man. Then, you got the stripper chick who’s after him for $10 million. Then there’s also all the legal disputes he’s got with his ex-wife, a bank and a man he injured in car accident. And, on top of all that, him and his coach are always beefing, so it’s doubtful he’ll see another season with the Redskins.
Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor sexual abuse for allegedly fondling the breast of his server in a hotel restaurant in Washington.
A grand jury returned an indictment formally charging Haynesworth over the alleged incident at a downtown Washington hotel in the early hours of Feb. 13. If convicted, the 29-year-old two-time All-Pro faces up to six months days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
According to the U.S. attorney’s office, the government’s evidence shows Haynesworth slid a credit card down the front of the server’s dress and fondled her breast.
Haynesworth’s attorney, A. Scott Bolden, called the charge disappointing and regretful and said it would be a difficult case for the government to prove. Haynesworth is innocent and several witnesses would vouch that the alleged conduct never happened, Bolden said.
“We maintain his innocence, and now the fight begins,” Bolden said.
Telephone and e-mail messages left for Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, were not immediately returned. Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie said the team referred all calls to Haynesworth and his agent.
Haynesworth is also currently facing charges in Virginia for allegedly punching a man during a road-rage assault. His trial is scheduled for May. At one point last summer, he was also involved in lawsuits from a bank, an exotic dancer, a man injured in an automobile accident and complaints from his ex-wife that he wasn’t paying for her health insurance or their children’s bills.
Haynesworth had constantly feuded with coach Mike Shanahan, skipped offseason workouts and failed to pass a conditioning test at the start of training camp. He did not start a game last season, despite being in the second year of a seven-year, $100 million contract, and is expected to be traded or released by the Redskins this offseason.
Welp, you can save ’em all. Ungrateful, arrogant, reckless talent who will have no one to blame but himself once he realizes he ended his own career with all this foolishness.
