A northern Virginia judge has dismissed a road-rage assault charge against Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth after the player reached an agreement with the alleged victim. A judge can dismiss misdemeanor assaults under a provision called "accord and satisfaction," in which a victim says he has been made whole, according to Virginia law. Police say the man accused Haynesworth of punching him in a traffic altercation in Reston. The man told investigators he made a gesture at Haynesworth for tailgating him.
