DUI Manslaughter- Stallworth Suspended Indefinitely by the NFL
Donte Stallworth, receiver of the Cleveland Browns, was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after a guilty plea to DUI manslaughter of a pedestrian.
“After a night of drinking at a bar in Miami Beach’s Fountainebleau hotel, police said Stallworth hit the 59-year-old Reyes, a Miami construction worker, who was rushing to catch a bus after finishing work at about 7:15 a.m. Stallworth told police he flashed his lights in an attempt to warn Reyes, who was not in a crosswalk.”
I’m really glad that serious steps and charges are being implemented against Stallworth. Drunk driving is a serious issue, and the circumstances of what happened are just devastating. Seriously, how hard is it to have a designated driver… especially when you’re a famous athlete?
What do you think about the situation?
