Chad Speck, who represents Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, has responded to the allegation that Haynesworth punched a motorist in the face.
Speck, who says the allegations are false, has forwarded to us via text message his comments to the Washington Post.
“Albert has yet to speak to the authorities at all on this matter,” Speck said. “So only one side of the story has been told at this point in time. If contacted by the authorities, Albert will certainly cooperate in any way. This man, who actually provoked the situation himself, recognized Albert and is now simply trying to turn it into his 15 minutes of fame and get, we can only assume, some money.
“Albert did not assault this man and looks forward to his day in court to refute these ridiculous allegations.”
Haynesworth reportedly will surrender to authorities next week.
