Stallworth also reached a confidential financial settlement to avoid a
potential lawsuit from the family of 59-year-old Mario Reyes, according to
Stallworth attorney Christopher Lyons. Reyes was struck and killed March 14 by
Stallworth, who was driving his black 2005 Bentley after a night drinking at a
swanky hotel bar.

After a night drinking at a bar in Miami Beach’s Fountainebleau hotel,
police said Stallworth hit Reyes, a construction crane operator who was rushing
to catch a bus after finishing his shift around 7:15 a.m. Stallworth told police
he flashed his lights in an attempt to warn Reyes, who was not in a crosswalk
when he was struck.
