Donte’ Stallworth: Not so Good News Edition


The things we have found out today.

First WR Donte’ Stallworth turns himself into Miami-Dade county authorities on his DUI manslaughter charges.  Then he was taken away in handcuffs and booked in jail, he was later released  a few hours later on bail, to the tune of $200,000.

Well if that were not enough it turns out that Stallworth was in the NFL’s substance abuse program prior to this recent charge.  This does not bode well for him if he does end up being charged, even if the only charge is a DUI; which according to profootballtalk.com is what one of Stallworth’s attorneys believes will happen.

Depending on which charges are brought against him will determine Stallworth’s suspension in the league, however this may be an afterthought if he is sentenced to jail.

His arraignment is set for April 23, at which point it is believed Stallworth will enter a not guilty plea and a trial date will be set.

    .14 is nearly twice the legal limit and someone died.

    He’s doing at least 3-4 years in the Pokey.

    Where do you get .14 – I thought it was reported that his BAC was under .13?  Anyways – you are right – jail is likely as this charge is hard to beat.  Even if it is true that he was barely speeding;  the pedestrian was crossing the highway illegally;  Donte flashed his headlights – those are all mitigating on sentence but not that helpful on guilty or not guilty.  All the prosecution has to show is that his BAC was above the legal limit, and that caused or contributed in any way to the fatal accident.  The real tragedy is that someone died;  and Donte will likely have to pay the price.  His football days are probably numbered.

    Maybe with Stallworth out of the picture the way has fiinally been cleared for the Browns to bring in an elite wide reciever like Plaxico Burress or Willie “Flipper” Anderson
