DONTE STALLWORTH UPDATE

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth has not been charged at this time after being detained by police for questioning regarding his alleged involvement in a car accident that killed a 49-year-old pedestrian today, Miami Beach Police Det. Juan Sanchez told us in a telephone interview a few minutes ago. Per the detective, who’s a Miami Beach police spokesman, Stallworth may not be charged for several days under Florida law procedure. Stallworth’s bloodwork has been sent to a lab to determine if alcohol or any other substances were in his system. According to Sanchez, Stallworth “has been cooperative with the investigation.” Stallworth may eventually be released on his own recognizance, but would be required to turn himself in if he’s formally charged with a crime. The Miami Beach police department knows the victim’s identity, but isn’t disclosing that information at this time. The man was pronounced dead at Jackson Memorial Hospital. “We haven’t released the victim’s name,” Sanchez said. “We won’t do that until we have notified his family. He is a 49-year-old white male.” The accident occurred at 7:17 a.m. this morning, and caused a major traffic jam for several hours. It’s an already busy time in South Florida because of spring break activities. Sanchez said that the causeways have been cleared as of 1 p.m.
