PROSECUTORS POISED TO CHARGE STALLWORTH WITH DUI

As authorities in South Florida wait for the results of a blood draw performed on Browns receiver Donte’ Stallworth, a source with knowledge of the investigation tells us that prosecutors are preparing an indictment for DUI manslaughter, under the assumption that the results will show that Stallworth’s blood alcohol content exceeded the legal limit of 0.08 percent when he collided with a pedestrian, who later died.

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.

And, frankly, he should be. Apart from the fact that he was involved in an accident that claimed a man’s life, Stallworth could be facing serious criminal liability, if the pending test reveals an impermissibly high concentration of alcohol in his blood.


Yeah, bad, bad deal. Honestly though, how many times have you been out drinking, went home and to bed, wake up early and head out...???

I've done this NUMEROUS times when I have to work the fallowing morning, on a weekend mostly.

Not saying he should not be held accountable, just saying, if the guy drank the night before, then of course it would still be in his blood.

Another thing, why did he have to have a blood test instead of a sobriety test at the scene??? I read that he was released at the scene so it obviously appeared to the officer that he was sober and without the scent of alcohol.

Bad deal for everybody.

When somebody dies the blood test is the normal procedure b/c he could have been under the influence of other drugs besides alcohol.

HOLY s**t! so he was dead when he was driving?!?!?!

.13 is what i blew when i got my DUI...

when my girlfriend picked me up, she thought i was gonna be hammered but she thought i was drunk. .13 is like a slight buzz... i bet i can blow that after a long night of drinking then getting 6 hours sleep
Criminal charges are the least of his concerns.

Talk about deep pockets (wasn't he driving a bentley). The family will sue him for everything he has.
I was in Miami at this time last year. While I was there, I said to a friend, "I wonder how many people get ran over a year here."

The reason I said that was because of how the locals were driving. They fly through intersections. They run lights. And they don't give two ****s if a pedestrian is in the street. In the week I was there I had a couple of close encounters.
So was he going home from the club at 7am or was he getting up that early to go somewhere?

This is sad. I would feel bad for Donte if he was getting up early to go somewhere and got into this accident.

you fail at providing news
I'm not really that knowledgeable about BAC but 1.3 sounds pretty high. Although .08 is the (in many places) legal limit right? How many beers does it take to get to .08 typically? 1-2 maybe? Does that mean to be at 1.3 he would have only had like 2 maybe 3 drinks?

No. Typically anything higher than 0.4 is death.

Who gives a crap what influence he was under, send his ass to prison or let one of the deceased mans love ones run him or an immediate family of his choice. Then maybe it will be fair.

The clubs are open until 7:00 am in Miami. He was probably coming back from Nocturnal.
I thought reports said he was heading to the beach...?

Death? *edit - you're right.. I was reading that as .04
