Haley charged with reckless driving last May

MIAMI -- Washington Redskins defensive tackle Jermaine Haley
has pleaded no contest to reckless driving following his arrest
last May.

Haley, who left the Miami Dolphins last year to sign with the
Redskins, was sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to
donate $3,000 to charity after his drunken driving charge was
reduced, the state attorney's office said Thursday.

Under the deal, Haley also has to comply with the NFL's
substance-abuse treatment program and disclose his NFL file and
treatment documents to the state attorney's office for review.

Haley's attorney, Drew Rosenhaus, had no comment.

Haley was pulled over after two police officers saw him swerve
into the other lane, hit a 1995 Honda and keep going, according to
a police report.

When the officers pulled Haley over, his speech was slurred, he
smelled of alcohol and he nearly fell when he got out of his black
Land Rover, the report said.

Haley had 13 tackles last year with the Redskins but was
sidelined for much of the season with a hand injury.

The plea was entered April 29.
