Redskins' Haynesworth Facing Simple Assault Charge
Posted on Feb 05, 2011
Albert Haynesworth, a Washington Redskins defensive lineman, was charged with simple assault after an alleged road rage incident in Reston, Virginia, on February 2.
The Washington Examiner reported that Haynesworth was driving a pick up truck on the Fairfax County Parkway when the driver of the vehicle in front of him, a Honda Civic, apparently felt he was being tailgated and made a hand gesture. At a stop light, Haynesworth got out of his truck and approached the driver of the Civic. The two reportedly "exchanged words" and then Haynesworth allegedly assaulted the other driver.
Haynesworth's agent denies the allegations.
