Miami-Dade prosecutors on Wednesday charged Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth with DUI manslaughter, alleging the football player was driving drunk last month when he struck and killed a pedestrian in Miami Beach.
Blood tests revealed Stallworth had a blood alcohol level of .126 after the 7 a.m. March 14 crash, according to documents filed in the clerk’s office Wednesday. Florida’s legal limit is .08.
Stallworth, 28, who has cooperated with authorities since the crash, is expected to surrender Thursday morning.
His attorney, Christopher Lyons, declined comment.
DUI manslaughter is a felony that carries a minimum of four years to a maximum 15 years in prison.
