It never ends.

On the same weekend that Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth surrendered on allegations of assault arising from road rage, Haynesworth allegedly committed sexual assault of a waitress at the W Hotel in D.C.

NBC Washington reports that police are investigating the claim.

Said agent Chad Speck, in a statement to NBC Washington: “There seems to be no truth to these allegations. We are currently evaluating facts and considering our own legal action against those involved.”

Regardless of whether Haynesworth is innocent, a guy who has been such a lightning rod for controversy needs to steer clear of any situation that could result in the making of true or embellished claims. That said, there’s a chance that the current allegations have been flat-out fabricated.

Time, as always, will tell.
