Former Tennessee standout and Pro Bowl defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was reportedly escorted from his son’s high school basketball game on Friday night, according to the Williamson Source.
Haynesworth was allegedly involved in an altercation with his son, Asharri, a starter on the Centennial High School basketball team prior to his game at Brentwood High School (Tenn.). According to the report, the two were “about 75 feet from the Brentwood girls’ locker room” at the time of the incident, which took place minutes before tip-off, with officers responding about a minute or two later.
Haynesworth reportedly exchanged words with the officers before being escorted from the campus without any further repercussions.
Video evidence of the incident has not been released and the officers were not authorized to comment to the Williamson Source.
Haynesworth was a second-team All-SEC defensive lineman for the Vols before being drafted at No. 15 overall by the Tennessee Titans in 2002. He made two Pro Bowl appearances during his final two seasons with the team in 2007 and 2008, before signing a lucrative contract with the Washington Redskins in 2009.
Haynesworth lasted two years in Washington before spending his final NFL season with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2011.
