Former Steeler Haynes goes to trial for allegedly bouncing checks
Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Verron Haynes appeared at the Allegheny County Courthouse this morning on charges that he wrote three bad checks totaling $70,000 to buy a 2001 Aston Martin.
Haynes, 30, of Georgia appeared for his pretrial conference and received a trial date of Sept. 16. The case is scheduled before Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey A. Manning.
Haynes is accused of purchasing the car from Monroeville car dealership A&L Motors on May 13, 2006, for $67,375. Haynes agreed to pay off the car by the end of 2006, but only made two payments totaling $7,650. He subsequently bounced three other checks to the dealership, according to a police affidavit.
A&L Motors sued Haynes last year in Common Pleas court in an attempt to get the money.
Haynes played with the Steelers from 2002-06 and briefly in 2007. He now plays for the Atlanta Falcons.
