BREAKING: Donte Stallworth Detained in Pedestrian's Death

New, comments

According to CBS4 in Florida, Cleveland Browns WR Donte Stallworth is being detained by police for questioning after accidentally running into a pedestrian with his car Saturday morning on the eastbound MacCarthur Causeway on Miami Beach.

According to the police report, the accident happened at the intersection of Fisher Island Drive and the MacCarthur Causeway. The Drive is where ferry access is provided to one of the most exclusive residences in America, Fisher Island.

The news comes just one day after Stallworth received a $4.75 million bonus from the Browns. Please refrain from unnecessary sarcasm when commenting on this article (i.e. don't say "now we have a good reason to cut him").

The OBR requested a comment from the team, but were not given a response.

UPDATE:

Stallworth was headed toward the beach when he hit Mario Reyes, 59, around 7 a.m., said Miami Beach police spokesman Juan Sanchez. The unidentified pedestrian was taken to a nearby trauma center, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later. Reyes was near a crosswalk but it's not clear if he was crossing legally.

Stallworth, 28, was cooperating and no charges have been filed, Sanchez said. Officers drew blood to test for drugs or alcohol, which is routine. Sanchez said results from the blood test could take anywhere from three days to three weeks.
