Redskins' Haynesworth charged with sexual abuse

Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been charged with misdemeanor sexual abuse for allegedly fondling his server's breast at a Washington hotel.

A grand jury indicted Haynesworth on Tuesday. The waitress' allegations have been reported by the media after the alleged incident in February. If convicted, the 29-year-old Haynesworth faces up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.

According to the U.S. attorney's office, the government's evidence shows Haynesworth slid a credit card down the front of the server's dress and fondled her breast.

Telephone and e-mail messages left for Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, were not immediately returned. Speck has previously said there was no truth to the allegations.
