Arizona Cardinals catcher Jermiah Braswell was arrested Saturday after allegedly driving his car to Lake Erie while intoxicated, according to WTOL 11.
Braswell, 23, 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 answered a call and found Braswell still in the driver’s seat. Braswell reportedly told officers that he was trapped and did not know what happened. Officers said Braswell’s speech was dragged and that Braswell conducted a field sobriety test. He was arrested for driving under the influence after that test. Braswell also reportedly failed a breath test, police told WTOL 11.
