MIAMI (AP) -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth is expressing condolences to the family of the pedestrian struck and killed last month while prosecutors say the NFL player was driving drunk.
Stallworth surrendered Thursday to face a DUI manslaughter charge that he killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes. The player was later released from Miami-Dade County Jail on $200,000 bail. The charge carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence.
In a brief statement outside jail, Stallworth said: "I just want to first extend my condolences to the Reyes family. My prayers are with them." Stallworth also says he has faith in the legal process.
Authorities say Stallworth's blood-alcohol was well above the legal limit at the time of the crash and that he'd been at a Miami Beach hotel drinking beforehand.
