Brand spankin new Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been indicted on two misdemeanor traffic charges in Tennessee after an accident that seriously injured another driver. District Attorney Kim Helper says Haynesworth faces charges of reckless driving and having expired registration.
Reports say that Haynesworth was released after surrendering yesterday. Maximum punishment is six months in jail and a $500 fine on the reckless driving charge and 30 days and a $50 fine for the other charge.
The charges come from a December 13th incident in which police say Haynesworth was trying to pass another driver, who crashed into a concrete median. Haynesworth’s agent didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
