SJ - September 29, 2020
Former NFL star Albert Haynesworth was arrested for domestic violence and disorderly conduct on Monday afternoon in Cleveland, Tennessee. He is accused of driving from his home in Franklin to the home of his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son, Brittany Jackson.
Haynesworth didn't actually commit any physical harm against his ex or her new boyfriend, but he was still arrested because they feared he would injure them.
From News Channel 9:
A release from the Cleveland Police Department says officers responded to a home on Chelsa Drive Northeast in Cleveland on Monday afternoon just after 4:30 p.m.
CPD spokeswoman Sgt. Evie West says Haynesworth was at the address yelling at Jackson and her new boyfriend, Reginald Tucker.
West says Jackson told officers Haynesworth drove to Cleveland from Franklin, Tennessee after making threats to physically harm Tucker and her.
West says Jackson told officers he did not commit physical harm against either Jackson or Tucker, Haynesworth still violated the law because they reasonably feared he would bodily injure them.
After being told several times to stop yelling and cursing, Sgt. West says Haynesworth was taken into custody.
Is anyone really surprised by this news given his past? I'm sure as hell not. I'd be more surprised if someone told me a 39-year-old Albert Haynesworth was running a successful used car business.
