Stallworth rejoins Browns amid police investigation

Donte’ Stallworth has rejoined the Browns and is participating in the team’s voluntary offseason workouts while Miami police await a toxicology report, Stallworth’s attorney told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Stallworth was driving a vehicle that hit and killed a pedestrian last week on a busy causeway linking Miami and Miami Beach. Officers drew blood to test for drugs or alcohol.

Stallworth’s attorney, Chris Lyons, talked to the Plain Dealer:

    “Donte’ returned to the team on Wednesday and the Browns have been very supportive,” Lyons said. “It’s been good for Donte’ to be back with his teammates and coaches.”
    Lyons said he and Stallworth have not been made aware of the results of the toxicology report. He said he had no comment on reports out of Miami that Stallworth was driving drunk when he struck and killed Mario Reyes, 59, with his Bentley last week. He also declined to comment on whether or not Stallworth was impaired during the accident.

Stallworth made his first public comments about the incident on Wednesday, issuing a statement through the Browns:

“My family and I are grief stricken over the tragic accident which occurred Saturday on Miami Beach where Mario Reyes sadly lost his life. My thoughts and prayers are with the Reyes family during this incredibly difficult time. Unfortunately, since this accident is still under police investigation, I cannot comment further on the matter at this time.”
