Behind the scenes at WFNY we debated not posting this because it is rumor and speculation wrapped in unnamed sources. Then again, given the places that we have read this, the cat is pretty much out of the proverbial bag on this one anyway.
The news comes via WSVN-Fox by way of the Miami Herald. According to “a source with knowledge of the investigation” Donte Stallworth was driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.12. The legal limit for driving under the influence of alcohol is 0.08.
The article goes on to say that the police aren’t confirming anything to date.
Now, the other reason that we at WFNY thought about not reporting this at all is because our interest in the story is as football fans. Discussing the football ramifications of this situation while a family mourns the death of a loved one seems kind of tasteless. So do what you want with the info. Unnamed sources have been wrong before. Unnamed sources have failed to exist in certain cases. Let’s just hope this sad case doesn’t get sadder by finding out that Stallworth was indeed negligent by driving under the influence.
