Report: Donte' Stallworth To Be Charged With Manslaughter

Sources (It's always "sources" isn't it?) are saying that Browns' WR Donte' Stallworth will face DUI manslaughter charges for hitting and killing a pedestrian last month.

DUI manslaughter charges are expected to be filed Wednesday afternoon against Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, alleging the football player was driving drunk last month when he struck and killed a pedestrian on Miami Beach, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

Blood tests revealed Stallworth had a blood alcohol level of .12 after the 7 a.m. crash, a second source with knowledge of the investigation told The Miami Herald.

Arrangements have been made for Stallworth to surrender to authorities, the source said.

Wow.  I suppose Stallworth might make bail until his case is heard in court, but could he really be able to focus on football with that hanging over his head?  Would the Browns even want the media circus that would bring?   Even if he's found not guilty, there could be a suspension in his future.

Things look very bad for Mr. Stallworth right now.  The fantasy value of the eventual Browns QB (Derek Anderson/Brady Quinn) doesn't look too good either.
