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.
