WASHINGTON (AP) — A lawyer for Albert Haynesworth says a witness was offered $50,000 to testify against the defensive lineman in a misdemeanor sexual abuse case.

Haynesworth is accused of sliding his credit card into a hotel waitress’s bra and touching her breast last February. He is due to stand trial Aug. 23 in the District of Columbia.

His lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, says in new court papers that the witness was offered the money by a man the waitress introduced as her attorney.

The Washington Redskins traded Haynesworth last month to the New England Patriots after his season-long feud with Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.

Bolden did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office says prosecutors are working on a response to the court filings.
