Patriots Haynesworth pleads No Contest to assault

New England Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth pleaded no contest to simple assault on Monday in connection to an incident in which a waitress at the W Hotel in Washington D.C. alleged she was inappropriately touched.

Haynesworth, a Washington Redskin at the time, was accused of sliding his credit card into a waitress’ bra and touching her breast at the Hotel, where he was having drinks with friends in February.

Facing a maximum penalty of six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine, ABC7’s Dan Patrick reports that Haynesworth was sentenced to 160 hours of community service.

Asked for a comment on his way out of the courtroom, Haynesworth replied: “Go Patriots.”

With the matter occurring during the NFL lockout, there is no word yet from the NFL as to whether Haynesworth would be facing disciplinary action from the league.
