BROWNS ISSUE STATEMENT FOR DONTE' STALLWORTH

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.
For more on the overall legal consequences, we give you a new PFTV segment.

  1. “where Mario Reyes sadly lost his life”
    No, Donte, let me ammend that for you:
    “where Mario Reyes was run over by me and killed”
    There, that sounds better.

  2. Eventually, they are going to have to make an example of these “above the law” athlethes. Throw the book at Stallworth and force the rest of pro-sports take notice…. Makes me sick.

  3. Florio for a while you had the bad-hair game on lockdown, but lately Brocato’s been challenging for that top spot. Watch your back.

  4. This is an all around tragedy. Donte Stallworth isn’t a thug or a bad guy. When he played here in Philly he was involved in the local charity events and seemed like a stand-up guy. I know there will be lots of posts piling on here, but let’s keep in mind that we don’t have all of the facts yet. This may serve as a wake up call to all of us who have drank a lot, slept it off and taken the groggy ride home in the morning. The consequences can be horrible.

    Statements of grief written by a PR or legal department on behalf of someone who just killed a guy never fail to really choke me up.
    I’m pretty sure I’ve read that exact statement before with different names filled in. Do lawyers get a set of boilerplate PR form letters when they pass the bar, or what?

  6. …and in conclusion …. does anybody have Mershawn Lynch’s lawyer’s phone number?

  7. Welcome to the National Felony League! The home of thugs, thiefs, drug users,shooters(they even hunt themselves!)In summary it’s the home of dumbs who have an average IQ of less than 80.
    These retarted guys make millions of dollars for only their athletic abilities and people with great minds suffer just because they don’t have those abilities. The reward for having great athletic abilities SHOULD NEVER outweigh having a great mind.
    Ordinary people, the people that are the backbones of this country, are getting fired for nothing and yet these retarded subhumans don’t even cherish the unjust money they are making. They torture dogs, kill people and always find a way to “redeem” themselves because they are NFL players. I hate this system.

  8. Punisher –
    you probably wont understand this but I will try. Saying someone is better cause they are smarter is just as bad as saying someone is better because they have athletic ability. They are both god given talents, (or if you don’t believe in god talents your born with). I don’t think you really understand life or have much maturity but the backbone of this country is hard workers regardless of salary. Generalizing all pro athletes as “subhumans” is just as stupid as saying something like all jewish people are cheap, or all french people are rude. Think for awhile before you make these kind of posts., and don’t make posts where you are trying to seem like you are better than other people, just get some maturity.
    btw if you feel this way about football why are you here?

  9. “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.”
    What if his blood-alcohol concentration was within legal limits? That shows he still had alcohol in his system while driving at 7:17 a.m. (when the incident occurred). I don’t care what level your blood-alcohol concentration is or was (especially at 7 a.m.), if you killed somebody with any mind altering substances in your system, you should be charged immediately.

  10. I dont care what any of you think of this, it takes a really dumb a** ADULT to get hit by a car let alone killed. And before any of you girls say” he could have been driving recklessly”, if he was, he would have been charged already. The authorities are HOPING they can charge him with DUI so they dont have to say ~Guy wondered into the street, and is now dead~. Its that simple, too bad Stallworth’s name has got to be dragged along because dude didnt look both ways.

  11. For you idiots that are actually taking up for Stallworth…it’s generally a good argument to ask “what if that were YOUR loved one that got hit?”

  12. Mike Florio said: “the guy pulls a hamstring when he gets up out of a chair”, and with a straight face no less.
    Very funny Florio, or were you even trying to be funny?

  13. “…and in conclusion …. does anybody have Mershawn Lynch’s lawyer’s phone number?”
    (MarshAwn) Lynch’s case was easy and a slam dunk for his lawyer. Stallworth is SO screwed.

  14. stallworth was driving fast i hear… cops and judges dont consider the drunkenness of the drunk stumbler an excuse
    for stallworth then.
    final four line, i am surprised he could even run a pattern, so to speak, based on his inability to keep himself on the field!
    spanky i dont know if you were posting last week when this news broke, but, as usual, the posse was out defending stallworth way in advance of the more factual reports. this happens everytime with black jocks, and their worshippers, who, need i mention, share something in common with the aforementioned jock.
    florio should lend his hair-raccoon to joe brocato.

  15. We are very fortunate that Florio is a lawyer and can provide his intelligent legal analysis.
    If blood alcohol is less than the legal limit, I think the prosecution will have a very difficult time proving reckless manslaughter. Is it reckless to pass a car that has stopped at a yellow light (I doubt the light was already red in this case). And what if the pedestrian saw the stopped car and, in a hurry to catch his bus, jumped into the crosswalk even though his light wasn’t green yet? The jury would have to UNANIMOUSLY find, BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, that Stallworth was reckless and that his recklessness was the proximate cause of the pedestrian’s death. I don’t see it happening, and I hope Stallworth can stay out of jail.
    Of course, even if he stays out of jail, he will face a civil lawsuit from the deceased’s family seeking very large damages. Just like OJ won the criminal case but lost the wrongful death case.
