Albert Haynesworth settles with man in road rage case

Sounds like Albert Haynesworth has paid up to make his road-rage assault case go away.

Now, the Washington Redskins defensive tackle can focus on his defense for a sexual assault trial scheduled for later on this summer.

The Associated Press reports a Fairfax County (Va.) judge has dismissed Haynesworth’s road rage case today after the troubled player reached an agreement with the alleged victim in the case. Haynesworth had been accused of punching the man at a stop light.

The law in Virginia allows the judge to dismiss misdemeanor cases if the victim has been satisfied, typically by a settlement involving cash.

Details of the settlement were not made public.
