Browns wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth was finally charged yesterday in the death of 59-year-old Mario Reyes, a construction worker who Stallworth hit with his Bentley on the morning of March 14th.
Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level after the crash was .126, well above Florida’s legal limit of .08, according to results of a blood test. Stallworth will also be charged with DUI, which carries a possible six-month sentence plus fines and community service for first offenders.
“Whenever a deadly accident occurs and a driver is impaired, families suffer,” said Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle in a statement.
Stallworth made arrangements to turn himself into authorities this morning; the league is reviewing the case to determine if disciplinary action will be taken. Driving drunk is one of those things that works every time except the last time. Which is why you should always drive drunk at least once. It’s part of growing up, just like stealing from convenience stores and sodomizing farm animals. They’re experiences that bring us together. In a place called “prison.”
