Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, recently signed by the Washington Redskins, was indicted on March 12 for reckless driving stemming from a traffic accident in Tennessee in December in which another driver suffered serious injuries.
A grand jury in Williamson County, Tennessee handed down the indictment on two misdemeanor charges: reckless driving and having an expired registration. According to the district attorney’s office, reckless driving carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $500 fine, and Haynesworth could receive another 30 days in jail and $50 fine for the second charge.
Haynesworth was released after he surrendered on March 11 and is scheduled for arraignment on March 30. He is not required to appear for court.
Haynesworth signed with the Redskins on February 27 and was a two-time all-pro performer during his time with the Tennessee Titans.
