Donte Stallworth Could Face Charges in Fatal Traffic Accident in Miami Beach

Browns WR Donte Stallworth Involved in Fatal Traffic Accident

(Editor’s Note: No new updates as of Sunday night on the Donte Stallworth case in Miami.  After you read the post below, follow the link to our post from earlier today, in which we discuss the unfortunate litany of vehicular homicides and other legal problems involving former Tennessee players; all are black eyes for both the university and the NFL.)

Per multiple reports today, Browns WR Donte Stallworth was involved in a fatal traffic accident early this morning in Miami Beach and could face charges. Much thanks to Barry McBride at the Orange and Brown Report for the tip on the Stallworth accident.

According to a report in the Florida Sun-Sentinel, Donte Stallworth was driving his Bentley east on the McArthur Causeway (a road KVB and I know well) toward Miami Beach when he struck a 49-year old man crossing the roadway. The victim was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

More from the Sun-Sentinel on the fatal accident involving Donte Stallworth:

According to witnesses, the victim worked at a nearby shipping company as an overnight crane operator. The man had just finished his shift and was crossing the street to catch a bus when he was struck.

Charges are pending the results of the investigation and blood tests, said Sanchez. Stallworth was cooperating with authorities and has not been charged, he said.

Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk is also reporting that Stallworth is being tested for whether or not he was under the influence at the time of the accident. According to PFT, this is the second traffic incident involving Donte Stallworth driving a Bentley, as he was also arrested in 2006 “after he refused to turn off his cell phone and shut off the engine after a traffic stop for driving with an expired license.”

It stands to reasons that Donte Stallworth was probably out celebrating the $4.875 million roster bonus that he received from the Cleveland Browns. The Browns had no real choice but to pay the bonus, since this portion of the contract Stallworth signed before last season was guaranteed. In 2008, Donte Stallworth was a disappointment in Cleveland as his injury troubles continued and he posted a paltry 17 receptions for 170 yards.

We will have to wait until the test results are back and whether charges are filed against Stallworth to make any further judgments. Either way, a difficult and tumultuous offseason for the Cleveland Browns continues. And as Florio points out, let’s not forget that an innocent man died as the result of a very preventable accident.

Update 3/14 3:40 PM: PFT has updated its report on the pending investigation into the fatal traffic accident in which Donte Stallworth hit a man early this morning while driving his Bentley. According to Florio, who spoke with Miami Beach Police Det. Juan Sanchez this afternoon, Stallworth is not being charged at this time and may not be for several days, pending the results of bloodwork to determine what, if any, substances might have been in Stallworth’s system. Per the PFT report, according to Det. Sanchez Stallworth has been cooperative with the investigation.

Update 3/14 6:38 PM: PFT has more on the Donte Stallworth story. While no charges are immediately imminent, PFT’s sources apparently believe that Stallworth will be charged with DUI manslaughter. Stallworth reportedly admitted to drinking last night, but took his last drink, according to PFT, at midnight. The accident did not occur until 7:00 this morning.

Lots more over at PFT, so jump over to their latest Donte Stallworth update.
