NFL's Stallworth pleads not guilty to DUI manslaughter in Miami

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth is pleading not guilty to DUI manslaughter charges stemming from a fatal Miami car crash in which a pedestrian died.

The plea was entered at a brief court hearing today on Stallworth's behalf by defense attorney Christopher Lyons. The 28-year-old Stallworth did not appear in court.

A trial date has not yet been set.

Stallworth faces up to 15 years if convicted. Police say Stallworth was driving drunk after a night on the town when he struck and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes on a Miami Beach causeway.

Stallworth is free on $200,000 bail and is required to abstain from alcohol, not drive and observe a curfew.
