Update via RedskinsInsider: Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, says he did not assault anyone and will cooperate with in road rage incident is "trying to turn it into his 15 minutes of fame and get, we can only assume, some money"

The drama never ends with Haynesworth, who is expected to turn himself in after hitting a man in a road rage incident. If Haynesworth wants a release, he just punched his ticket, literally:

The episode occurred Wednesday morning, and involved a 38-year-old man driving a 1994 Honda Civic and another driver, allegedly Haynesworth, both driving south on the Fairfax County Parkway, Broderick said. The driver of the Civic reportedly felt that a pickup truck following behind him was tailgating, and issued a "non-verbal hand gesture" to the pickup driver, Broderick said.

About 9:16 a.m...the two vehicles came to a stoplight. Broderick said the driver of the pickup truck emerged from his vehicle, had a brief exchange of words, and then struck the Civic driver.

Haynesworth, 29, has not been arrested but is planning to turn himself in next week, Officer Shelley Broderick said.    

The "non-verbal gesture" I think we can assume was the middle finger. Talk about some brass balls. How awesome is that bar story going to be for this guy? "Yea, I gave Haynesworth the middle finger." I think I can speak for all Redskins fans that we applaud you.

Haynesworth's driving debacles are well-documented as his speeding in Tennessee left a young man paralyzed for life.

Cut the guy. Now.
