Police are saying they don’t have the blood test results back from the accident involving Donte Stallworth that left a man dead:
Miami Beach police on Friday said they had not received the results of a blood test given to Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth, who was driving his Bentley last Saturday when he struck and killed a pedestrian in Miami Beach. A source with knowledge of the investigation told The Miami Herald on Thursday that Stallworth’s tests had returned and showed that the football player was driving drunk at the time of the crash. Miami Herald news partner WFOR-CBS 4 reported that Stallworth’s blood alcohol level was .14. The legal limit is .08. ”Right now I don’t have anything, and as far as I know, we don’t have anything,” said Officer Deborah Doty. Miami Beach police have declined comment on the reports, saying results would not be released until their investigation is complete. No charges have been filed against Stallworth, 28, who is cooperating with detectives investigating Saturday morning’s fatal accident at the southeast end of the MacArthur Causeway near South Beach. Struck and killed was Mario Reyes, 59, who was getting off work as an overnight crane operator and trying to cross the street to catch a bus home just after 7 a.m. He died at the scene.
Stallworth issued a statement through the Cleveland Browns Wednesday expressing his condolences to the victim’s family, but declined to address any aspect of the crash. ”My family and I are grief stricken over the tragic accident which occurred Saturday on Miami Beach where Mario Reyes sadly lost his life,” Stallworth said in a prepared statement. “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,” Stallworth said. A video obtained by The Herald over the weekend showed two Miami Beach police officers giving the football player a sobriety test. Earlier this week, Miami Beach police said results of the test would be released Friday. Stallworth signed a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Browns as a free agent before last season, but hardly played because he was hurt. Stallworth, who previously played for New England, Philadelphia and New Orleans, finished last season with just 17 catches for 170 yards. Reyes was born in Cuba and left as a teenager for a better life in the United States. He worked numerous construction jobs. He was an avid baseball fan, particularly fond of the Florida Marlins. Reyes is survived by his wife of almost 20 years, Catalina, and the couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Daniela.
It doesn’t look good for Donte. Peep the video below.
