Albert Haynesworth Gives Homeless Man Unwanted Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

NFL: Preseason-Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals

When I first read the headline, I thought is was very cruel, but when you read the actual story you may feel that it is justified.

You make the call.

Haynesworth tells TMZ Sports … he recently noticed a homeless man set up camp in restaurant’s underground parking garage and called police to escort him off the property.

But according to Albert, the guy came back –and began harassing Haynesworth’s patrons.

“He swung at some girls.The guy was running off customers.”

So Albert decided to take matters into his own hands — “I gave him the ice bucket challenge!”

Albert says he took a bucket of water from the ice cream machine and doused the guy … hoping it would send a message that he wasn’t welcome on the property.

“I don’t usually care [about homeless people on the property] as long as they don’t mess with people and sometimes we’ll make them food when they come up to the front and give out forks and napkins to the customers.”
