Washington, DC - Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been indicted on a charge of misdemeanor sexual abuse stemming from an incident at a Washington hotel two months ago.

The indictment was handed down by a District of Columbia grand jury on Tuesday and an arraignment was scheduled for the morning of May 10.

Haynesworth is charged with caressing a waitress' breast as he slid his credit card into her blouse at the W Hotel early in the morning on February 13.

In the police report of the incident, the waitress said her hands were full of glasses as she cleared the table where the suspect (Haynesworth is not named) was sitting.

The suspect asked if it would be OK to place his credit card in her blouse and the waitress nodded her head yes, according to the report. The suspect placed his card in her blouse, then slid it further in the left side and began to caress her breast, according to the report.

The high-paid tackle, embroiled in controversy on and off the field since he was signed by the Redskins, is also facing assault charges stemming from an alleged road rage incident in Virginia.

Haynesworth had turned himself in to authorities on that charge just one day before the alleged sexual assault.
