You own a Bentley for God sakes, you should have enough quid left over to hire someone to cart your sorry @ss all over town. With these guys, they think the laws dont apply to them. Its all about the "look at me" "look what I got!" mentality. Perhaps if these idiots learned to read, they would see whats happening to the other athletes around them. (Marshawn, Pacman, Burress) etc. So sick of hearing about this type of crap. If it happened to me< Id be looking at 20 yrs. or more. Its gettin old. :-t


Quite possibly The Post of the Year...and its only mid March ;-D

From Rotoworld/Cleveland Plain Dealer:

WSTN in Miami reports that Donte' Stallworth had a blood-alcohol level of 0.12 when his vehicle collided with pedestrian Mario Reyes last weekend, killing Reyes.

The legal limit in Florida is 0.08. Stallworth's attorney and Miami police will not confirm the report. If the report proves accurate, police could charge Stallworth with DUI manslaughter, a felony calling for up to 15 years in prison.

Dude could be going to jail for a long, long time.

Hopefully Stallworth wont be able to follow Leonard Little's(who should have originally gone to prison and currently preside there) legal footsteps and get off without serving time. It really does beg the question though..if Little can plow into another motorist and kill her with a BAC of .19 and not go to jail, then how will Stallworth not get off as well? Stallworth looks even more likely to not serve jailtime if the guy was crossing illegally. Really makes me sick. :-X

Millionaire or not, there's no damn excuse for it. Sadly, I'm not too optimistic of him getting an appropriate punishment, at least in terms of jail time. At least he faces Goodell's wrath.

Drink driving is abhorrent behaviour, especially they they have the money power to have someone taxi them around.

Throw the book at him.

Don't forget. Little had another run in with the law AFTER the one you mentioned and he WAS under the influence. He got off with only a speeding charge though as the police failed to give him a BAC test. (he failed 2 field sobriety tests iirc)

It's bull****. I'm a Rams fan, a St.Louis resident and this disgusts me. Let's set some ****ing examples and throw these goons in jail.

Police report: Pedestrian hit by Browns WR Stallworth wasn't in crosswalk

MIAMI -- A pedestrian wasn't in a crosswalk when Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth hit and killed him with his Bentley, according to a report released Tuesday by police in Miami Beach.

According to the report, Stallworth told officers that he flashed his lights to try to warn 59-year-old Mario Reyes, a construction crane operator who was rushing to catch a bus after getting off work around 7:15 a.m. March 14.

Police said Stallworth was driving about 50 mph in a 40-mph zone. They are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the accident. No charges have been filed against Stallworth pending the outcome of blood tests.

A police diagram shows that Reyes was hit in the far left lane of the six-lane MacArthur Causeway -- not in a nearby crosswalk. Stallworth stopped a few feet away.

Police also released calls from three people who dialed 911 that morning.

The first, a woman, said, "There's a man laying in the middle of the road." The dispatcher asked for her location and a description of the victim.

Then the woman blurted: "He's dead. He's dead ... He was just laying in the middle of the road. I think he's dead."

None of the callers apparently witnessed the accident. One man, saying he was on his way to work, said he "heard a hit" and then saw Reyes lying in the roadway. A few moments later, a police officer arrived.

Stallworth's attorney declined comment Tuesday but has said his client is cooperating with police. Stallworth last week released a statement saying he was "grief stricken" over the accident.

Stallworth signed a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Browns before last season, but he was injured for most of the year. He was scheduled to receive a $4.75 million signing bonus the day before the accident. Before that, he played for the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints in the NFL and at the University of Tennessee.

I don't think this really helps his case. He was still over the limit and is still responcible for NOT hitting pedestrians. Also, I still have not heard..... did he drive off or did he wait for police?

Problem with the speeding thing is that unless they can prove beyond a doubt that Stallworth would've been able to stop in time had he been going the legal speed limit, that won't amount to anything more than a routine speeding ticket. I did hear something about the police attributing the accident partially to reckless driving, so he could still get charged if they decide that led to the accident.

As for responsibility for hitting pedestrians, fact is if Stallworth did everything he could to prevent the accident (which we can't conclude either way), the final fault lies with the pedestrian for not crossing at a crosswalk on a road with a 40 mph speed limit.

And if Stallworth had fled the scene, we definitely would've heard about it by now; the media would jump on that immediately.
