Jim Brown, self-appointed savior of the troubled black athlete, nosed his way into Donté Stallworth’s situation as a nominal member of the Cleveland Browns management team and joined Dan LeBatard on his Miami radio show to defend the young man, who will now be serving a month in prison for his involvement in the death of a pedestrian. (Sorry, Brendan.)
(Run, Donté! Jim Brown’s coming to help!)
While defending Stallworth, Brown also happens to drop that alcohol wasn’t the only “influence”-ing chemical in Stallworth’s bloodstream at the time of the crash. Brown told LeBatard that Stallworth smoked marijuana the night of the accident, making it clear that he had a “very reliable source”. Thanks for helping, Jim! Way to pitch in!
