In 2002, Donte Stallworth was selected 13th overall in the NFL Draft out of Tennessee. After bouncing around the NFL, Stallworth landed in Cleveland six years later, signing a seven-year contract worth $35 million. Approximately one year after the ink dried on his new deal, the wide receiver is arranging to turn himself in after the news of that charges of DUI manslaughter will be filed following the accident that occurred early on March 14th.
The report states that his blood alcohol level (.12) was above the legal limit of .08. Under Florida law, DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony, carrying a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. The victim, Marco Reyes (59), is survived by his wife of almost 20 years, Catalina, and the couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Daniela.
