17. Donte Stallworth, New Orleans Saints & Five Other Teams:
Speedster Stallworth was arrested on DUI Manslaughter in 2009. He struck 59-year-old Marlo Reyes in Miami Beach, Florida, killing the man. Reyes was attempting to catch a bus after his work shift had ended. Stallworth was speeding at the time of the incident.
The former football star also had a blood alcohol level of .12, over the legal limit of .08. He reached a plea deal in court and was dealt a sentence of 30 days in jail, 1,000 hours of community service, two years of community control, and eight years’ probation. Stallworth also reached an out-of-court settlement with Reyes’ family. The State of Florida permanently suspended his driver’s license as well.
His trouble didn’t end there, as Roger Goodell suspended him for the 2009 season. Stallworth’s attorneys felt he could have fought and even had a great shot at getting off the charges. But he chose to plead guilty to a felony because he felt that was the right thing to do morally.
