This was a horrible tragedy. A innocent life was lost and a family mourns all because of a unconsciable bad decision to drive while impaired. Very sad.

Leonard Little part 2.

Let's see how the new regime handles it. My money is on Dante Stallworth never playing a down of NFL football again. He's not young enough or talented enough to last through this. And I think the NFL wants to lose the image of letting guys with this level of crime getting back into things without some massive penalties.

Stallworth had been using marijuana, but not necessarily prior to his driving and killing the pedestrian. Police, lawyers, and family all knew this prior to the settlement, but Stallworth's indefinite suspension will likely continue, um...indefinitely.

From the Philadelphia Daily News: July 1:
Report: Stallworth positive for pot

Daily News Wire Services

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donté Stallworth reportedly tested positive for marijuana after he fatally struck a pedestrian with his car while driving drunk March 14.

Stallworth is serving a 30-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter in the death of Mario Reyes, 59. He also reached an undisclosed financial settlement with Reyes' family.

Stallworth has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Attorney David Cornwell, who is representing Stallworth in that matter, released a statement yesterday after the Miami Herald reported on its Web site, citing unidentified sources, that the receiver tested positive for marijuana after the accident.
