Back in 2009, Donte Stallworth drove drunk and accidentally killed a man. He was going to breakfast and killed a man that was crossing the street. Donte plead guilty to DUI manslaughter and was given 30 days in jail. It’s something he will never forget. On Friday, it was the 5 year anniversary of that horrible day and Stallworth sent a message that cleary shows he’s still living with guilt. There is no upside to what happened — but it’s good that he’s trying to send a message to help prevent someone else from making the same mistake he did.

His full message with photo:
5 years ago today, I left my home driving across the I-395/MacArthur Causeway for breakfast… and that decision turned out to be one I could never undo. Mr. Mario Reyes lost his life and his teenage daughter lost her father. It’s never acceptable to drive under the influence. You put others and yourself at great, perilous risk… It’s a lose-lose situation that too many of us in society gamble with far too often… And it’s 100% preventable. Take care of your people when you know they shouldn’t be driving. Plan ahead and be responsible. There’s nothing I can do to reverse that day, but hopefully you guys will think of me and make better decisions than I did that morning. You don’t want to live with these regrets I have from my irrevocable decision… Trust me. #BeSmarter
