Stallworth recently struck and killed Mario Reyes near Miami Beach while driving his Bentley over the speed limit. Afterward, a video of police handling Stallworth at the scene of the accident sneaked onto the internet, causing some serious controversy.
But that hubbub will pale in comparison to the firestorm that will erupt if the rumored (for the second time) news that Stallworth is being charged with DUI manslaughter comes to fruition. The Miami Herald is now reporting that that's exactly what will happen in the coming days, citing a source close to the investigation.
DUI manslaughter charges are expected to be filed Wednesday afternoon against Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, alleging the football player was driving drunk last month when he struck and killed a pedestrian on Miami Beach, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.This news would seemingly indicate that the blood tests that police administered at the scene showed that Stallworth was indeed intoxicated while driving his automobile. The primary controversies -- in a legal sense -- surrounding the case involve not only the toxicology report from the wide receiver, but Reyes' failure to be within a crosswalk while moving across the street. However, that negligence may be nullified by Stallworth exceeding the speed limit and, of course, being under the influence.
