    Former Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth finished half of the community service he is required to do as a result of a plea deal in a case in which he was accused of touching a waitress's breast at a D.C. hotel.

    Haynesworth's attorney told a Washington judge Tuesday that his client had completed at least 83 of the necessary 160 hours.

    Haynesworth, who was recently released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, pleaded no contest in August 2011 to a charge of simple assault in the case. Prosecutors will drop the charge entirely if he continues to stay out of trouble for the next year and finishes the remaining hours of community service.

    Haynesworth next has to report on his progress to the court on Aug. 15.
