Former Patriots wide receiver Donte Stallworth was reportedly drunk when he hit and killed a 59-year-old pedestrian in Florida last weekend. Sources said his blood alcohol level was between .08 (the legal limit) and .16.
Stallworth reportedly could face DUI manslaughter charges, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 15 years. His lawyers are said to be negotiating a plea deal.
Reaction: What was Stallworth doing intoxicated at 7 a.m.? It surely must have been a late night.
It’s infortunate that a man’s life was lost because of Stallworth’s completely irresponsible actions. Because he’s an athlete, it’s unlikely he’ll spend much time, if at all, in prison.
