Cleveland Browns Donte Stallworth’s Future is in Question

Donte StallworthMiami, Florida. Wide receiver Donte Stallworth has always been a safe bet during fantasy football drafts as your second or third wide-out. This year Stallworth will be a very risky pick. The 28 year old NFL player allegedly was driving his Bentley on March 14th when he drove into pedestrian Mario Reyes.

Reyes, 59, did not survive the incident, and Stallworth is the focal point of a criminal investigation. Miami police are adamant that no details of their investigation have been released. However, a local Miami television station, WSVN-Fox, claims Stallworth’s blood alcohol level was 0.12. The State of Florida enforces a DUI legal limit of 0.08.

Stallworth has expressed sorrow over the incident, and will not comment further as the investigation is pending. Stallworth just signed a seven year $35 million deal with the Browns coming off a solid season with the New England Patriots.

Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the family and friends of Mario Reyes.

    My prayers are with the Reyes’ family. It is always a tragedy to hear about a loss due to drinking and driving.

    That’s odd they were adamant that they had not charged him with DUI. Maybe because they knew him or whatever. The AP news reported that he was very cooperative with the police.

    I felt sad for Donte. I cannot imagine, accidentally killing someone with my car. It just must be a horrible feeling.

    I don’t feel sorry for Mr. Stallworth. He has had a blessed life. Wealth should not be a barrier to receiving equal punishment under the law. The first thing that he did after being arrested was to hire a white attorney. Now as a black man he has alienated two racial groups, the hispanics and blacks.
