Albert Haynesworth charges: DT indicted on sexual abuse charge
This story originally contained an incorrect date of the alleged incident at the W Hotel. It reportedly occurred in 2011, not 2010.
This story has been updated to include salacious details.
Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth on Tuesday was indicted on a misdemeanor charge of sexual abuse, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Haynesworth was charged in connection to a Feb. 13 incident at the W Hotel rooftop lounge, in which a waitress accused the troubled NFL player of inappropriately touching her breast. According to authorities, Haynesworth "slid a credit card down the front of his server’s dress and fondled her breast."
An incident report stated that the 23-year-old waitress was walking by a table when a man asked if he could put a credit card in her blouse. The waitress agreed, and the suspect then slid the card into her blouse and started to caress her breast.
Haynesworth, 29, wasn't identified by name in the police report, but NBC previously reported that he was the target of the investigation. When approached by a detective about the incident, Hayneworth told authorities "I know what this is about, she is just upset that I have a white girlfriend."
"I couldn't tell you the last time I dated a black girl," He reportedly said. "She was trying to get with me."
Haynesworth, who had also reportedly told a security agent that his server had been "a little black girl," refused to answer additional questions, according to the documents.
A Redskins spokesman referred questions to Haynesworth and his agent. Haynesworth's agent directed calls to his attorney.
"Disappointing, regretful and a difficult case for the government to prove," his attorney, A. Scott Bolden, said in an email, when asked for comment on the indictment. "My client will continue to fight these charges consistently and as aggressively as possible in court. I remain confident that he will be vindicated in the end."
