eveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth has been suspended indefinitely by the National Football League, days after he pleaded guilty to killing a pedestrian while driving under the influence of alcohol, the NFL said.


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth on Tuesday pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter.

Stallworth, 28, pleaded guilty in a Florida court Tuesday to DUI manslaughter charges in the March death of construction worker Mario Reyes. Under terms of a plea agreement, he will serve 30 days. Prosecutors said he began serving his sentence immediately.

"The conduct reflected in your guilty plea resulted in the tragic loss of life and was inexcusable," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told Stallworth in a letter Thursday, the league said. Excerpts from the letter were posted on the NFL Web site.

"While the criminal justice system has determined the legal consequences of this incident, it is my responsibility as NFL commissioner to determine appropriate league discipline for your actions, which have caused irreparable harm to the victim and his family, your club, your fellow players and the NFL."

Stallworth's suspension is effective immediately, the league said. Goodell wrote in the letter that "in due course" the league would contact his attorney to schedule a meeting with him, after which a final determination would be made on discipline.

Stallworth was driving his black Bentley GT east on the MacArthur Causeway, which connects Miami, Florida, to the South Beach area of Miami Beach, when he struck Reyes on the morning of March 14, according to prosecutors. He had been drinking at a Miami Beach club, according to court documents. His blood alcohol level was 0.126 percent, prosecutors said; Florida's legal limit is 0.08.

What's that old saying...You can run but you can't hide...He got a lil slap on the wrist for the crime itself, but the NFL is a whole nother monster to deal with...
He payed the family an amount that is not being disclosed, which is why he is not doing a lot of time in jail. He also was honest and remorseful. He was suppose to donate $2,500 (I think) to MADD but they say they won't take his money because they don't agree with the sentence. MADD does not play about things like this, and I'm sure they have a lot to do with him being suspended indefinitly
Wow! well i hate to say this but You rep wut you soe .. It was a life he took ..
Damn. You gotta live with the decisions you make.
