Today’s PD reports that Browns WR Braylon Edwards spent a whopping $3,443 on alcohol the night before the morning of the accident involving teammate Donte’ Stallworth”
Braylon Edwards and Donte Stallworth, No. 17 and No. 18, respectively, in your Browns program, are friends. Each was also an enabler of sorts for the other. The fatal accident in which a legally drunk Stallworth struck and killed Miami pedestrian Mario Reyes in March followed a night when he and Edwards carried on like “Diamond” Jim Brady.
Edwards spent $3,443, including $1,500 for a bottle of champagne and $695 on vodka. Stallworth, who was celebrating a $4.5 million bonus the Browns had just paid him, bought for Edwards’ table a $375 bottle of tequila. He was also billed $90 for five shots of the stuff.
After reading an account such as this, it’s amazing that anyone could even get behind the wheel of a vehicle, and is amazing that more people were not hurt.
