Washington Redskins Albert Haynesworth III, 29, was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on a charge of misdemeanor sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr. announced.

Haynesworth, of Knoxville, Tenn., is accused of fondling a server while at the rooftop lounge of the W Hotel in Washington. If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, he faces up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. An arraignment date has not yet been set.

According to the government’s evidence, on February 13, 2011, Haynesworth was among a group of patrons in a cordoned-off section of the Northwest hotel’s rootop P.O.V. Lounge. At about 2 a.m., according to the government’s evidence, Haynesworth slid a credit card down the front of his server’s dress and fondled her breast.

An indictment is a formal charge that a defendant has committed a violation of criminal laws and is not evidence of guilt.

The case was investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department and is being prosecuted by the Sex Offense and Domestic Violence Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
