CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A new report says former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth tested positive for marijuana following his fatal DUI crash.
A STATEMENT FROM DAVID CORNWELL REGARDING DONTE' STALLWORTH
"Evidence leaked or released over the coming days and weeks will reflect exculpatory statements and acts by Donte', the presence of marijuana in his blood, and it will highlight the critical issue of causation. Miami law enforcement personnel, the prosecution, the defense, and the Court were fully aware of all of the evidence when the plea agreement was reached. We will continue to address these matters candidly and privately with the NFL.
The NFL's substance abuse policy addresses the specific discipline that may be imposed for use of illegal substances. We are confident that Commissioner Goodell will respect existing League polices and consider all of the evidence when making his disciplinary assessment. "
Stallworth could be released from prison as early as next week.
More details coming soon, check back.
