After Two Delays, Stallworth Pleads Not Guilty To DUI Manslaughter

Comments (0)

After the prosecution delayed twice, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth finally appeared in a Miami-Dade, Florida courtroom on June 5 to plead not guilty to charges of DUI manslaughter.

The charges stem from a March 14 incident in which the 28-year-old pro footballer allegedly struck and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes. According to police reports, Stallworth had a blood-alcohol content of 0.126, above the legal limit of 0.08.

According to the reporting officers, Stallworth’s breath reeked of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot and watery. They say he admitted to officers at the scene that he was the one who was driving the car that struck Reyes.

Stallworth is out on $200,000 bail and is required to submit to random drug and alcohol testing and must adhere to a strict curfew.

If convicted, Stallworth could face up to 15 years in prison.
