NFL.com wire reports CARTHAGE, Tenn. (May 12, 2006) — Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was charged with reckless endangerment after being accused of trying to run a car off the highway.

The Smith County sheriff said May 12 a warrant for the player’s arrest was issued after James J. Bond filed a police report.

Bond told police that Haynesworth on May 7 swerved, sped and attempted to pass a car driven by Bond’s mother-in-law on the shoulder of Interstate 40, about 45 miles east of Nashville, Smith County Sheriff Johnny Bane said.

“The affidavants feared for their lives and felt they were in danger, as well as other drivers around them,” he said.

No officer was present at the scene, and the warrant was issued after authorities investigated Bond’s report, Bane said.

He said police have spoken with Haynesworth’s attorney, who told them the player will surrender on the charges soon. He will face $1,000 bail.

Neither the Tennessee Titans nor Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, immediately returned calls from The Associated Press.
