Haynesworth accused of sexual assault

Haynesworth Posted by Josh Katzowitz

UPDATE 5:50 p.m. EST: A police report obtained by NBC Washington details the sexual assault allegations against Haynesworth.

The report says a waitress at the W Hotel was clearing glasses at Haynesworth’s table. It came time to pay the bill. The waitress’ hands were full so Haynesworth asked if he could slip his credit card in her blouse near her breast area. She nodded her head yes. When Haynesworth placed the card into her blouse, he slid it around further into her left side and then started to caress her breast. The incident happened at 1:30 a.m. The police report was filed at 5:15 a.m.


Redskins DL Albert Haynesworth just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.

According to NBC Washington, a waitress has accused Haynesworth of sexual assault this past weekend at the W Hotel in Washington. Police are investigating, and the U.S. Attorney’s office will determine if any charges can be brought against the troubled Haynesworth.

Said Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, in a statement to NBC Washington: "There seems to be no truth to these allegations.  We are currently evaluating facts and considering our own legal action against those involved."

You’ll recall that earlier this month Haynesworth was charged with simple assault in a road rage incident. He actually had turned himself in Saturday for that alleged offense. He’s due in court March 31 for that apparent infraction.

But now it seems that Haynesworth might have even bigger problems.

  • Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports is whipping through a Top-40 list of NFL Draft prospects. Ryan Mallett (who checks in at No. 37) is at one point called a "statue with a cannon attached," if that makes you feel good about your team maybe drafting him. It shouldn't.

Albert Haynesworth charged in road rage incident

Posted by Andy Benoit

Well, at least Albert Haynesworth finally showed some fire and intensity. Too bad it was off the field and against the law.
Tom Jackman of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins defensivA. Haynesworth (US Presswire)e tackle has been charged with simple assault for a road rage incident with another motorist on the Fairfax County Parkway. Haynesworth has not been arrested but plans on turning himself in next week.

Jackman provides the details of the alleged incident:

The episode occurred Wednesday morning, and involved a 38-year-old man driving a 1994 Honda Civic and another driver, allegedly Haynesworth, both driving south on the Fairfax County Parkway, Broderick said. The driver of the Civic reportedly felt that a pickup truck following behind him was tailgating, and issued a "non-verbal hand gesture" to the pickup driver, Broderick said.

About 9:16 a.m., at the intersection with New Dominion Parkway, near the entrance to Reston Hospital Center, the two vehicles came to a stoplight. Broderick said the driver of the pickup truck emerged from his vehicle, had a brief exchange of words, and then struck the Civic driver.

She declined to be more specific about the circumstances of the assault.

A simple assault is a class 1 misdemeanor and carries a fine of $2,500. A maximum jail sentence is 12 months, but not a soul out there believes Haynesworth will ever face any time behind bars.

UPDATE 12:30 p.m. EST: Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, has issued a statement (via Pro Football Talk):

“Albert has yet to speak to the authorities at all on this matter,” Speck said.  “So only one side of the story has been told at this point in time.  If contacted by the authorities, Albert will certainly cooperate in any way.  This man, who actually provoked the situation himself, recognized Albert and is now simply trying to turn it into his 15 minutes of fame and get, we can only assume, some money.

“Albert did not assault this man and looks forward to his day in court to refute these ridiculous allegations.”

Snyder on worst money spent: 'You all know'

Posted by Will Brinson

Over the past six months (or so), we've written 277 post (or so) about the Washington Redskins. They're full of the crazy and it results in a lot of blogging. 

A lot of that crazy might come from owner Dan Snyder, who was part of a candid D.C. Sports Leaders Summit (or, to be more precise: An Event in Which Washington Sports Owners Answered Questions for Reporters) on Tuesday morning, where he spoke kind of candidly about the worst money he's ever spent.

"I don't have to answer this, you all know," Snyder said, per Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.

Okay, so that's not so much candid as it is vague, but it's pretty obvious that what Snyder is telling the fans and reporters is "I wasted a TON of money on Albert Haynesworth and I'd really appreciate it if you didn't bring it up again."

Either that or he knows that the Redskins are picking up Donovan McNabb's option in 2011 and is just refusing to tell anyone.

Also interesting was that Snyder said that the Redskins would not participate in HBO's "Hard Knocks" because it would be too much of a distraction.

"My impression is when you see that Hard Knocks," Snyder said, via Steinberg. "It's almost like you're creating a situation where the coaches, knowing there's a camera in that room, are acting. And as an owner, as a fan, you really want them to work, go get that work done and coach up the team and win. And I think it's a distraction."

Which is probably accurate, just not any different from normal Redskins training camp, except for the cameras taking everything public instead of reporters.

  • If football fanatics like Ron Jaworski and Jon Gruden think a football game is running a bit long, chances are it’s taking forever. Check out this video from the Orange Bowl when the MNF team discuss how long the game took.
  • Looks like some of the Jets players are going to need a refresher course on the NFL playoff overtime rules system.
  • It sounds like Giants coach Tom Coughlin doesn’t hate the media quite as much as he used to hate us. With an appearance by CBSSports.com’s own Pete Prisco.
  • Matt Millen feels good for John Elway. And he has some advice for how to navigate the world of an NFL team’s front office.
  • How brutal is this? UFL players, according to Pro Football Talk, are still waiting to receive their final paycheck of the year. If you’ll recall the UFL championship game was played at the end of November.

Our last post of the year (hopefully)

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

We’ve come to the last NFL Facts & Rumors blog post of 2010. But don’t be sad, dear reader. Be happy, because in 2010, you only got a half year’s worth of entertainment (or, if you’re so inclined, a half-year of you wondering how in the hell Andy Benoit, Will Brinson and I got these jobs) after we jump-started this bad boy in June.

Either way, we appreciate your reading eyes, your argumentative nature in the comments section and your passion for the NFL. Without your hunger for news at all hours of the day, this blog would have a very hard time surviving. And we thank you for being here and for inviting us onto your computers every day.

We look forward to 2011, because it’s the playoffs, it’s the Super Bowl in Dallas, it’s the NFL Draft and hopefully it’s the agreement of a new CBA. Hopefully, it’s not Brett Favre or Albert Haynesworth or an owner lockout.

And hopefully, nothing more about foot fetishes.

And speaking of foot fetishes (I can’t believe I waited until New Years Eve to break out my strong segue skills), I thought we should end this year on an appropriate note – briefly discussing, once more, what simply isn’t our business.

More photos have surfaced of a woman that looks like Ryan’s wife getting her feet fondled by somebody who isn’t Rex Ryan. I won’t bother linking to the website; if you want it, it’s not too difficult to find. Instead, I’ll give Ryan the last word on the matter (and of the year).

"It's a personal matter and I'm not going to discuss it," said Ryan, according to ESPN New York.

And that (hopefully) is that.

Happy new year to all.

Hot Routes 12.25.10: Christmas edition

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

- After missing practice Wednesday with flu-like symptoms, Patriots QB Tom Brady said the absence hasn’t affected his preparation for Sunday’s game vs. the Bills.

- An interesting column here by the L.A. Times’ Sam Farmer, via the Baltimore Sun, which discusses the effectiveness of players-only meetings. They might not be quite as helpful as you would imagine.

- Newsflash! It’s going to be cold in Cincinnati this weekend. The Chargers will simply have to adjust.

- Don’t go uttering the word “playoffs” if you happen to find yourself in Chiefs headquarters. That word has officially been banned.

- The spirit of gift-giving lives inside the Dolphins locker room.

- Redskins DE Kedric Golston is done for the season because of elbow and groin injuries. Golston is kind of like a poor man’s Albert Haynesworth (compared to Haynesworth, though, we’re all poor men), except that Golston actually plays hard and plays well for his team. So, maybe Albert Haynesworth should be reclassified as a poor man’s Kedric Golston.

- A cool story about Colts coach Jim Caldwell and Raiders owner Al Davis and about the kindness of the latter to the former.

Shanahan would welcome McNabb in '11 as a backup

Posted by Will Brinson

Donovan McNabb went on the radio Tuesday and said that he'd been "disrespected" when Redskins coach Mike Shanahan decided to make him the third-string quarterback.

So you have to wonder how McNabb feels now that Shanahan has decided to lob out an offer to take McNabb back in 2011 ... as a backup. (Update: McNabb's agent has released a statement, and so has Shanahan, via the Redskins.)

"I'm not sure he would [return as a backup], which I would understand," Shanahan said via Jason Reid of the Washington Post. "But I think that's why we're talking about hypothetical situations. I don't think that would happen. But if he was interested in that, obviously, that'd be a possibility."

Shanahan also said that "people might have speculated" on Grossman starting over McNabb but it was never actually realized until he told both quarterbacks last Thursday.

But that's really semantics, because the dissonance between McNabb and Shanahan is almost mind-boggling at this point. After all, it's not like Shanny's sitting on a franchise quarterback right now (although theoretically Grossman could be his Jake Plummer-like bridge to whatever his Washington version of Jay Cutler will be, but, um, have fun with that).

Not to mention, the Redskins signed McNabb to an extension, which means they'll have to cough up an extra $10 million if they want to keep him in 2011. They could trade him, of course, but it seems a lot less likely that another quarterback-needy team (Seattle? San Francisco? Minnesota? Carolina? Arizona? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?) will part with anything of significant value knowing that Shanahan doesn't perceive McNabb worth the amount he'll cost his own team.

As a result, the most likely way this plays out is the Redskins cutting McNabb approximately one minute before the deadline to pick up his option, after a lengthy offseason filled with "I want to play but I want to start" quotes from McNabb countered daily by "We'll welcome Donovan back any time he wants as long as he understands his role" retorts from Shanahan.

So, yeah, just like Albert Haynesworth's whole thing minus all the vitriol.
