Former Steelers running back Verron Haynes is scheduled to go to trial in September for writing bad checks to pay off an Aston Martin he bought from a Monroeville car dealer.

Mr. Haynes, 30, now with the Atlanta Falcons, had a pretrial conference yesterday on charges that three checks he wrote to A&L Motors bounced in 2007 and 2008 while he was trying to pay for a $67,375 car. The checks were worth a total of $70,000.

His trial date is scheduled for Sept. 16.

i saw he signed with the falcons, so i'm sure he has a little more cash to pay that Aston Martin off.

Maybe his aspirations for a cool vehicle should have been tempered down a bit. Maybe go for a Hyundai, maybe Chevy!

Haynes has been in the NFL for awhile now so he should have enough chunk laying around for a $70,000 car.

Just another case of a NFL player making stupid money decisions.

How many ex-wives and children does he have? He was writing checks that were bigger than his yardage. He should have blocked better and maybe he would be driving a Rolls Royce instead.

He should've called Starks up and asked for a loan. That's petty cash for him.

Yeah, but maybe he should hit up somebody that played even longer in the NFL for some $$$$$........like Bernie Kosar.

Ah.........never mind.
