Cardinals receiver arrested after allegedly driving car into Lake Erie while intoxicated

Arizona Cardinals receiver Jermiah Braswell was arrested Saturday after allegedly driving his car into Lake Erie while intoxicated, according to WTOL 11.

The 23-year-old Braswell signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in April. He went to college at Youngstown State University in Ohio.

Braswell reportedly drove his car off an embankment and ended up in the lake. Officers responded to a call and found Braswell still in the driver’s seat. Braswell reportedly told the officers he was stuck and didn’t know what happened. Officers said Braswell’s speech was slurred, and had Braswell perform a field sobriety test.
