The Miami Beach Police Department has not confirmed the reports, and no charges have been filed against the 28-year-old Stallworth, The Associated Press reports.

Mario Reyes, the man struck by Stallworth’s Bentley, died Saturday.

The accident occurred about 7 a.m., and he had just finished an overnight shift at the Port of Miami and was walking to a bus stop, AP reports.
