The trial of Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth ended before it started.
Haynesworth entered a plea of no contest to simple assault for an incident where he was accused of inappropriately touching a waitress at the W Hotel in Washington D.C.
Dan Patrick (not that one) of ABC7 in D.C. reports Haynesworth will serve 160 hours of community service. That’s a lot of hours.
Haynesworth was asked for comment by reporters as he entered the courtroom. His response: “Go Patriots.”
UPDATE: Keith Alexander of the Washington Post has more details. Haynesworth has agreed to an alcohol abuse assessment and psychological assessment as part of the agreement. He has 18 months to complete the community service.
