Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth was reportedly driving his Bentley and struck and killed a pedestrian Saturday morning in Miami Beach, Fla.

A police spokesman told the Associated Press that Stallworth's car hit a man who was crossing the causeway linking downtown Miami and Miami Beach around 7 a.m.

According to the AP, the man later was pronounced dead at a trauma center.

It's not clear if the pedestrian was crossing the street legally or if Stallworth violated any traffic laws.

No charges have been filed against Stallworth at this point, according to the AP. He reportedly had his blood drawn to be tested for alcohol and drugs, which the AP described as routine procedure in such a matter.

In time we'll find out what happened, and if it comes down on Stallworth, what punishment will Commissioner Robert Goodell apply to the Cleveland Browns receiver?
