Albert Haynesworth indicted on charge of sexual abuse

A District of Columbia grand jury on Tuesday indicted Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth on a charge of misdemeanor sexual abuse in connection with an alleged assault on a waitress at a downtown hotel in February.

The indictment stems from an incident in which the embattled football player allegedly caressed the breasts of a waitress at the W hotel as she was clearing the table. He will be arraigned on May 10.

Recently, Haynesworth was charged with assault in connection with an alleged road rage incident that took place on the Fairfax County Parkway in Reston on Feb. 2.

A driver accused Haynesworth of hitting him while he was sitting in his car. The trial on that charge is scheduled for May 26 in Fairfax County General District Court.
