According to the Herald, police said Stallworth is cooperating with the investigation. No charges have been filed.

Blood was drawn at the scene to determine if Stallworth was drinking. Police routinely draw blood after fatal accidents.

Stallworth came to the Eagles at the start of the 2006 season in a trade with New Orleans for linebacker Mark Simoneau. He spent one year with the Birds before signing as a free agent with New England. He agreed to a 7-year, $35 million deal with Cleveland before the 2008 season.
