A misdemeanor assault charge against Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was dismissed Tuesday in Fairfax County court under a statute that allows for such a dismissal if the victim acknowledges he received satisfaction for the injury.
"The nature of this case was perfect for this statute," Merril said. "In an assault case with only two parties involved, if both of those people are satisfied, there's no reason for the court to hear the case."
