NFL Receiver Stallworth May Have Been DUI In Fatal Crash

Comments (0)

According to information leaked by The Miami Herald and other media outlets in the Miami, Florida area, Cleveland Browns receiver Donte Stallworth, who struck and killed a pedestrian, was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the fatal crash.

On March 19, Miami’s WSVN-TV reported that anonymous sources with knowledge of the investigation say that when the fatal crash took place, Stallworth had a blood-alcohol content between .08 (the legal limit) and 0.16.

The Miami Herald also cited an anonymous source who said that Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit.

No formal charges have been filed against the 28-year-old NFL star, but if he was in fact driving drunk, he could face a charge of DUI manslaughter that carries with it a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.

The police have yet to release any blood tests concerning the case and have not specified when they will be released.
