Stallworth to enter plea in DUI manslaughter case

MIAMI -- An arraignment hearing is set in Miami for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth on DUI manslaughter charges stemming from a March car crash in which a pedestrian died.

Stallworth is not expected to be in the courtroom Thursday, where his attorney plans to enter a not guilty plea.

The 28-year-old Stallworth faces up to 15 years if convicted. Police say Stallworth was driving drunk after a night on the town when he struck and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes on a Miami Beach causeway.

Stallworth is free on $200,000 bail and is required to abstain from alcohol, not drive and observe a curfew.

Before Cleveland, he played for New England, Philadelphia and New Orleans in the NFL and in college for Tennessee.
