STALLWORTH UPDATE
MIAMIó Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth was charged Wednesday with killing a pedestrian last month while driving drunk after a night out at a swank South Beach nightspot.
An arrest warrant charging Stallworth, 28, with DUI manslaughter was filed in the March 14 accident that killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes. If convicted, Stallworth would face as many as 15 years in prison.
Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level after the crash was .126, well above Florida’s legal limit of .08, according to results of a blood test. Stallworth will also be charged with DUI, which carries a possible six-month sentence plus fines and community service for first offenders.
A Miami Beach police report said that Reyes was not in a crosswalk on busy MacArthur Causeway when he was struck by the black 2005 Bentley luxury car driven by Stallworth. The construction crane operator was trying to catch a bus home after finishing his shift around 7:15 a.m.
The report also quoted Stallworth as saying he flashed his lights at Reyes in an attempted warning and that Stallworth was driving about 50 mph in a 40 mph zone.
An additional police affidavit filed Wednesday said that on the morning of the crash, Stallworth was drinking at a club in the posh Fountainebleau hotel on South Beach. He left to go to a nearby home ó and then headed out to the causeway where Reyes was struck.
COWBOYS
DALLAS ó Cowboys tight end Jason Witten says Terrell Owens being on the field made him a better player.
What Witten won’t say is that T.O. not being in the locker room will make Dallas a better team. Or that the Cowboys are now more Romo-friendly, a reference to what owner Jerry Jones has said he wanted to become this offseason for quarterback Tony Romo.
“I don’t want to look at it and say we are a better locker room,” Witten said Wednesday in his public comments since the Cowboys released Owens four weeks ago. “We’ve got a lot of good football players. I do think that. We’ve got to go show it. We’ve got to stop talking about it.”
