WASHINGTON -- Former NFL defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth has finished the community service he was required to do as a result of a plea deal in a case in which he was accused of touching a waitress' breast at a Washington, D.C., hotel.

Haynesworth's attorney, A. Scott Bolden, said Tuesday that his client had completed more than the necessary 160 hours.

Haynesworth pleaded no contest in August 2011 to a charge of simple assault in the case. Prosecutors agreed to drop the charge entirely if he continued to stay out of trouble and completed the community service.

The case was closed Monday after Haynesworth and Bolden appeared in court.
