FAIRFAX, VA. (AP) - Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth’s trial on misdemeanor charges related to an alleged road-rage assault in northern Virginia has been postponed.

Lawyers said Haynesworth may be in the process of settling the matter with the alleged victim, which is permissible under Virginia law. The trial had been set for Thursday in Fairfax County. Now it’s set for Tuesday.

Police say a man accused Haynesworth of punching him in a traffic altercation in Reston. The man told investigators he made a gesture at the driver of a pickup truck he thought was following too closely. The two vehicles stopped and the truck’s driver, later identified as Haynesworth, got out of his pickup and allegedly punched the other driver.

Haynesworth’s agent has said his client is innocent.
