Dennis Murphy said the privacy interests of the family of victim Mario Reyes outweighed the public's right to view the video. Several news organizations made a public records requests seeking release of the video, recorded by a Florida Power & Light camera.

"This is akin to autopsy photographs," Murphy said, adding the video will remain sealed "for the foreseeable future."

Tests showed Stallworth had a blood-alcohol level of 0.126, above Florida's level of 0.08 at which a person is presumed impaired. His attorneys confirmed there also were traces of marijuana.

He is serving a 30-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter, after which will be two years of house arrest and probation. Stallworth also has been suspended indefinitely by the league.

Jets standout suspended: The league banned Jets linebacker Calvin Pace for four games for violating its policy on performance-enhancing substances. In a statement issued by the team Pace took responsibility, saying he took an over-the-counter dietary supplement that he was unaware violated the policy and he "should have paid closer attention to the league's guidelines." Last season, Pace had a career-high seven sacks, 67 tackles, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
