As prosecutors in South Florida continue to prepare possible DUI manslaughter or vehicular homicide charges against Browns receiver Donte’ Stallworth, the Browns have issued a statement on Stallworth’s behalf.
“My family and I are grief stricken over the tragic accident which occurred Saturday on Miami Beach where Mario Reyes sadly lost his life,” the statement reads. “My thoughts and prayers are with the Reyes family during this incredibly difficult time. Unfortunately, since this accident is still under police investigation, I cannot comment further on the matter at this time.”
Authorities are awaiting the results of a blood sample drawn after the accident. If Stallworth’s blood-alcohol concentration was above the legal limit, he’ll undoubtedly be charged immediately.
