Albert Haynesworth Charged With Simple Assualt

Dan Snyder‘s horrible no good week keeps getting worse.

Albert Haynesworth, the man the Washington Redskins owner paid $41 million to do almost nothing, was charged “with simple assault for a road rage incident with another motorist on the Fairfax County Parkway in Reston, Fairfax police said.”

The Class 1 misdemeanor is punishable by up to 12 months in a county jail and a $2,500 fine, although Washington Post reporter Tom Jackman notes “a maximum sentence is rarely imposed for altercations such as this unless the defendant has a lengthy prior record.” (Does head stomping count as a prior record?)

It’s been a difficult year for Haynesworth.The defensive lineman fueded with coach Mike Shanahan all season and although his Redskins teammates say it didn’t derail the season, the situation was certainly a distraction. The Redskins are in chaos, and the latest incident won’t help anything.

In closing, Haynesworth: not so much worth the money.
