Honestly…is there a once-storied franchise having a worse month than the Redskins? Here’s another one for the file: Albert Haynesworth has been accused of sexual abuse by a waitress who claimed the defensive lineman got a little too close for comfort. From the police report, obtained by NBC Washington, which has sources that say “Subject 1” is in fact Haynesworth.

According to a police report obtained by NBC Washington, the waitress stated that her hands were full carrying glasses as she was clearing the table at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

She said that “Subject 1” tried to pay his bill by giving her his credit card, but he asked if it was OK to stick the card in her blouse near her breast area. She nodded her head yes and, according to the report, she said he then placed the card into her blouse gently, sliding the card further into her left side of the blouse and then started to caress her breast.

This marks the second legal run-in for Haynesworth this month, and if it wasn’t for the looming lockout preventing any real contract decisions, I’m sure there would be a nice debate brewing about the future of AH with the team.

Further, I will now take suggestions for the appropriate tag we use to describe all future Redskins’ failings. We have “Natinals” for mix ups by our baseball club, give me something more creative than “Fail to the Redskins.”

  1. Good luck, this town is loyal to a fault to their beloved Redskins, who, by the way, did get rid of Haynesworth, so it’s not like he is still with the team (although by leading off their news coverage yesterday, NBC4 acted like he still is).

    But in the spirit you asked for, I’ll drag out a term that was used before they won the 3 Super Bowls.

    The “Deadskins”…
