Washington Redskins tackle Albert Haynesworth has managed to dodge yet another bullet. I don’t know how he did it but he’s received more get out of jail passes than the monopoly board game itself.
After being suspended for the majority of the 2010 Washington Redskins season, Haynesworth found himself in trouble when he “allegedly” punch a man during a traffic road rage incident in Fairfax, Virginia. However, under a Virginia state law he’s now once again a free man.
FAIRFAX, Va. – A misdemeanor assault charge against Washington Redskin Albert Haynesworth has been dismissed. Both Haynesworth and the man who accused the huge NFL player of throwing a punch after a traffic altercation appeared at a brief hearing in General District Court in Fairfax, Va.
The judge asked Arthur Velasquez of Leesburg, Va., whether he had signed an “accord and satisfaction” agreement; Velasquez said “yes” and the judge dismissed the assault charge.
Virginia law allows judges the discretion of dismissing charges in such cases if the parties involved come to a deal.
Hopefully this would be his last run in with the law. Now only if he could use that same energy on the field this season, we all would be happy.
