So… how was everyone’s Saturday? Good, good. Oh hey, Donte Stallworth killed a guy this morning. The ol’ “Bentley versus pedestrian, WHO YA GOT?” And Donte could well be f’d with a capital F: Pro Football Talk says that prosecutors are looking at DUI manslaughter pending blood test results:
Per the source, Stallworth admitted to drinking at least four Patrons and two Margaritas. A separate source called that information “basically right,” but added that Stallworth contends he had his last drink at midnight. The incident occurred after 7:00 a.m. local time.
We’re also told that Stallworth claimed in his statement to police that he saw the man crossing the street from a distance, and flashed the high beams and honked the horn of the Bentley he was driving. Apparently, there’s an issue as to whether Stallworth could have taken evasive action because of a barrier along the median.
We’re told that Stallworth is badly shaken by the news that the pedestrian had died.
Altogether shitty news. KSK sends its condolences to the bereaved family, and we’ll hope that Stallworth wasn’t under the influence.
Oh, and one more thing I’d like to point out to wealthy athletes, ad infinitum: HIRE A FUCKING DRIVER WHEN YOU GO OUT. YOU ARE RICH. YOU CAN AFFORD IT. REALLY.
