Redskins' Haynesworth indicted on traffic charges

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Washington 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.

Haynesworth, a former Tennessee Titan who signed with the Redskins last month, was released after surrendering Wednesday. 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 Dec. 13 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.

he wont go to jail

Probably no jail, but somewhere in Nashville there is an attorney licking his chops ready to file a monumental lawsuit for the injured driver. All they can see is $$$$$$$$$$$.

And then some.

It's called.....................living in America.

He probably should have stopped to help the person who crashed!

Where does it say he didn't??, If he left the scence he would have been charged with "Leaving the Scene", don't see that listed amongst his

charges. Although i'm not a fan of AH, people tend to blow things out of porportion because of his celebrity status.

I wonder how happy nashvegas is with him since he just left over money. The dude needs to go to jail though. He is reckless on the road and needs a wake up call. Not for 6 months but maybe 30 days or something.

Da mn why so vindictive???? Alot of ppl (average joes) get reckless driving charges filed against and get off with a suspended/reduced

charge and a fine. It's really not that uncommon - Speeding (20/25 miles over the posted speed limit), involment in an accident that was

your fault (where injury/ies) will automatically snag you one. I speak from personal experience. I made an illigal uturn, had an accident,

driver of the other car sustained an injury (cut on the hand), which didn't require stitches and i was cited for reckless driving.

I had my charge reduced to improper driving and paid a $150.00 fine. It was explained to me by the cops that anytime you cause an accident

that involves an injury, you will be charged with reckless driving. I just believe people are blowing this way out of porportion.
