Albert Haynesworth charged with assault

According to the Washington Post, Albert Haynesworth has been charged with simple assault for a road rage incident in which he allegedly exited his truck and  struck a fellow driver after being shown a “non-verbal hand gesture” for tailgating.

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.

Get flicked off, punch some random person in the face.  Seems completely reasonable to me.

Unbelievable….Is it just me or can we pencil this guy in as just an absolutely terrible human being?

That 4th round pick we were offered last year is looking real good right now.  I can’t wait for us to cut him at this point.  Today, please?

    What? Big Al isn’t a model citizen? He’s got an anger problem? Same old, same old. Innocent ’till proven guilty, so prove him guilty, cut him as he wishes, and let him take his act elsewhere. At this point I don’t care if he lights it up for some other team.
