Report: NFL receiver Stallworth was drunk when he killed pedestrian

MIAMI — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth was driving drunk -- blood alcohol tests showed he was over the legal limit -- last weekend when he struck and killed a pedestrian with his Bentley in Miami Beach, a source with knowledge of the investigation told The Miami Herald.

Miami Beach police would not confirm Stallworth had a blood alcohol above the legal limit.

''We have not released anything regarding the blood work,'' said Jenny Velazquez, a Miami Beach police spokeswoman. ``We're not confirming anything.''

Miami's WSVN-Fox 7 television station reported Thursday afternoon that Stallworth's blood alcohol level was .12. The legal limit is .08.

No charges have been filed against Stallworth, 28, who is seen on a video obtained by The Herald being given a sobriety test by two Miami Beach police officers.

Robert Switkes, Stallworth's civil attorney, said he had not seen the toxicology report.
